Outstanding works from the museums unique CoBrA collection are permanently on show. Works by Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Eugene Brands, Anton Rooskens, Henry Heerup, Asger Jorn, Carl-Henning Pedersen for example.

CoBrA has been of crucial importance for the development of modern art in the Netherlands. The art of the international CoBrA movement is one of the country's most important post-war artistic legacies.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Paris was the centre of European art. Famous artists, such as Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier, Hans Hartung, Asger Jorn, Georges Mathieu, Arnulf Rainer, Nicolas de Staël, Antoni Tàpies and Bram van Velde all chose to live in this vivacious and inspiring city. In this exhibition, an ode to lyrical abstraction, action painting, l’art informel and material painting, masterpieces have been brought together from the oeuvres of over 30 European masters. An exhibition of this nature is long overdue, as it investigates a period that generated so much interesting and beautiful art - by artists who intensively and diligently experimented in the age of the reconstruction. They were not only French and Dutch artists, but also German, Italian and Spanish, Danish and Belgian, for they were all working in Paris.

Paris Central
Vrije stad, vrije kunst
in de jaren '50

24.10.2009 - 17.01.2010

Parijs was in de jaren veertig en vijftig van de vorige eeuw hét middelpunt van de Europese beeldende kunst. Beroemd geworden kunstenaars waaronder Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier, Hans Hartung, Asger Jorn, Georges Mathieu, Arnulf Rainer, Nicolas de Staël, Antoni Tàpies en Bram van Velde kozen de bruisende en inspirerende stad tot hun domicilie. In deze tentoonstelling, die een ode is aan de lyrische abstractie, tachisme, l'art informel en de materieschilderkunst, worden schilderkunstige topwerken samengebracht uit het oeuvre van ruim dertig Europese meesters. Het is de hoogste tijd voor deze tentoonstelling over een tijdperk dat zoveel interessante en prachtige kunst heeft voortgebracht - met kunstenaars die naarstig experimenteerden in de tijd van de wederopbouw. Niet alleen Franse en Nederlandse kunstenaars, maar ook Duitse, Italiaanse en Spaanse, Deense en Belgische. Want allemaal waren ze in Parijs.
