In the spring of 1994, the Quist wing serves as a temporary depot for the painting collection. The works hang in rows, up to the ceiling, so that almost the entire collection is on display. The ‘salon’ as an exhibition form is re-introduced in the exhibition Depot on display, paintings from A to Z.
Mondriaan next to Monet
The works are arranged in alphabetical order, which results in unexpected combinations. For example, a large painting by Louise Bourgeois hangs next to the impressionistic work of George Breitner, the work of Ger van Elk can be seen in the vicinity of that of James Ensor, the paintings of Van Gogh appear alongside the abstract paintings of Daan van Golden and Piet Mondriaan hangs side by side with Claude Monet.
