The generous contributions from our benefactors enable the Kröller-Müller Museum to maintain the collection in optimal condition, make special acquisitions, organize high-profile exhibitions and set up educational projects. Private individuals and companies sympathetic to the museum and the collection also provide an indispensable contribution through the Helene Kröller-Müller Fund.
The Kröller-Müller Museum has been a beneficiary of the VriendenLoterij since 2000. The museum receives an annual amount that enables it to make important acquisitions that complement and enrich the collection. The museum has received a total of over 15 million euro since 2000. Thanks to this long-term support, the museum has acquired, among other things, the painting Vincent (1915) by Vilmos Huszár (1884-1960) in 2012, a tribute to Van Gogh whom he much admired, and the stone-carved Temple of everyday life (1986) by Pjotr Müller (1947) in 2014. The most recent acquisitions are Opposites of White (2006-2007) by Roni Horn (together with the Mondriaan Fund and the Rembrandt Society), 4 futurist drawings by Alexander Bogomazov and Paravento con linea di velocità (Screen with speedline) by Giacomo Balla from 1916-1917. The acquisition of Giacomo Balla was also supported by the Rembrandt Society.
