What’s the story behind the masterpieces in the museum’s collection? The museum owns a magnificent collection of the work of a renowned glass artist—but who is it? How many objects that are precisely twenty-seven centimetres tall can be found in the collection? Answers to these and countless other questions can be found in the new Collection Book. It was developed in close collaboration with Studio Joost Grootens. Grootens started from two fundamental principles: the complete collection catalogue and the way the museum works with its collection. He has designed a sumptuous and exciting book that sheds light on these principles from different perspectives. This overview of an internationally renowned collection is intended not just for the dedicated museum visitor and lover of unusual art books, but for anyone who enjoys being surprised by the eclecticism of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s collection.
