In September I wrote someting about Hoenderloo and the national park of the Hoge Veluwe in Gelderland( see map). In this park there are several buildings. One of them is the gallery of Kröller-Müller, or as we call it the Kröller-Müller museum. It's a modern building and houses many paintings of Vincent van Gogh and other Dutch painters, but also those of other European painters of the 19th and 20th century. For the children there was a quiz which had them look for details of certain paintings. Outside there are statues, some of them modern others traditional.
The museum is named after Helene Kröller-Müller, an avid art collector who was one of the first to recognize Van Gogh's genius and collected his works. In 1935, she donated her whole collection to the state of the Netherlands. In 1938 the museum, designed by Henry van de Velde opened. The sculpture garden was added in 1961 and the new exhibition wing, designed by Wim Quist, opened in 1977.
