Kröller-Müller Museum : Michelin's recommendations
This very attractive museum is found in the centre of the De Hoge Veluwe national park. It was founded by rich businessmen from whom it received its name and was inaugurated in 1938. It was extended in 1960 with the creation of a sculpture garden and again in 1977 (addition of a new wing). It has a large collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings. Among the many artists represented here one can mention Zadkine, Mondrian, Picasso, Braque, Ensor, Signac, Cézanne, Renoir, Monet, Jongkind, Millet, Corot. But the most famous artist is Vincent Van Gogh. Set up around the patio, his pictures are classified in chronological order. This presentation method means that the visitor will better appreciate the extraordinary contrast between the dark works at the start ( The Potato eaters, The Cloth workshop) and the more colourful and dynamic later works. Among them these last works, you must see The Olive tree, The Cypress tree by starlight, The terrace café in the evening, The bridge at Arles, The Old man crying, The lady from Arles, Sunflowers. In the room of the new wing are contemporary sculptures depicting various artistic trends such as Minimalist Art, the Zero group and Arte Povera. Finally, do not miss the garden and sculpture park (Beeldentuin en -park) which has some splendid works by contemporary artists.
