For the instruction and enjoyment of society’

Making bold acquisitions, Helene Kröller-Müller and her husband Anton Kröller assembled a unique and now world-renowned collection of 19th and 20th century visual art. Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller already made an appeal to wealthy art lovers in the crisis years after 1929 to help maintain their collection and open it up ‘for the instruction and enjoyment of society’. Thus the ‘House for art’ was born; the Kröller-Müller Museum. Today, 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.

Can you help keep this ‘House for art’ alive?

With your contribution you support projects essential to maintain the collection in top form, to allow more people to enjoy it and bring them into contact with the works of art in new ways.
