1928 – 1935

The donation

Part of: Helene Kröller-Müller

To protect her collection, Helene transfers all the art to a Foundation. She persuades the government to financially support the construction of the ‘grand museum’. In exchange, the Kröller-Müller Foundation donates her collection to the State. But under a new cabinet, Helene’s dream is again brought into question in 1935.
