Kroller-Muller Museum. The History of a Sculpture Garden

The sculpture garden at the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands, rolls on for more than 60 acres. It is not just one of the largest such outdoor art spaces in the world, but one of real cultural and historical significance, showcasing a unique overview of twentieth-century sculpture from Rodin forward. This richly illustrated volume traces the histories of some of the garden’s most fascinating pieces, particularly site-specific works, along with the design of the landscape itself and various extensions to the grounds. Finally, recent designs from the esteemed Dutch landscape architects, West 8, for the exterior–and by Gerrit Rietveld and Aldo van Eyck for the renowned sculpture pavilions–are considered along with the garden’s future. With work by Auguste Rodin, Richard Serra, Claes Oldenburg, Dan Flavin, Dan Graham, Atelier Van Lieshout and many others.
