Helene Kröller-Müller Fund
The Kröller-Müller Museum is a place where things of beauty come together. The unique combination of art, nature and architecture guarantees visitors a truly unforgettable experience. An experience that arouses all the senses. The museum is a paradise for both seasoned art lovers and objective newcomers. With more than 300,000 visitors a year, the Kröller-Müller Museum is one of the most popular museums in the Netherlands. The collections are also a huge international success. Masterpieces on loan attract millions of visitors throughout the world.
On 13 July 2013 it was exactly seventy-five years since the Kröller-Müller opened its doors to the public. On that day the museum was opened in festive style. Millions of people from home and abroad have since visited the world-renowned collection of 19th and 20th century visual art, brought together by Helene Kröller-Müller and her husband Anton Kröller ‘Assembled for the instruction and enjoyment of society, this collection serves to give a clear picture of the developments of individual modern artists and of the art of our time in general.’
Preserving the life of such an exceptional collection and providing it a future cannot be done by any collector or museum alone. Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller already made an appeal to wealthy art lovers in the crisis years after 1929. And now, in this time, their form of cultural entrepreneurship is back. Art once again calls for personal involvement, from those who wish not only to enjoy art themselves, but also to share that enjoyment with others.
You can donate to projects that are essential for maintaining the collection in top form, to allow more people to enjoy it and bring them into contact with art and our collection in new ways. The Helene Kröller-Müller Fund was recently set up for that purpose.
