1912 – 1913

Museum Kröller

Part of: Helene Kröller-Müller

Helene continues thinking about her museum. The collection is growing explosively. In just a few years she collects a record number of Van Goghs, thus laying the foundation for her ‘Museum Kröller’, which at that time is still in the city centre of The Hague.
