Armando: a collection
November 15th, 2014 - March 22nd, 2015Painter, sculptor, draughtsman, writer and poet Armando (1929) is one of the Netherlands’ most versatile post-war artists. His substantial and compelling oeuvre is characterized by melancholy, guilt and memory. In this exhibition we show a selection from the unique collection assembled by Armando’s ex-wife Tony de Meijere throughout their lengthy marriage and which she has now donated to the Kröller-Müller Museum on permanent loan.
Van Gogh & Co. Criss-crossing the collection
April 25th, 2015 - September 27th, 2015On 29 July 2015 it will be exactly 125 years since Vincent van Gogh died. The Van Gogh Europe Foundation, a collaboration of around 30 organisations is seizing this opportunity to honour the Dutch artists under the theme ‘125 years of inspiration’. Activities will be organised throughout the year in various towns in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and England that featured in the life and work of the artist.
The exhibition Van Gogh & Co, at the Kröller-Müller, will concentrate on the traditional genres at the end of the 19th century: still life, nature, cityscape and the human figure. Works by Vincent van Gogh - more than 50 in total including paintings and drawings - from various periods will be combined with those of his contemporaries from the museum’s own collection. Visitors will have the chance to draw parallels and discover how Van Gogh dealt with the various genres.
