Stedelijk Museum Schiedam

A selection from the acquisitions 2008 – 2013 Stedelijk Museum Schiedam often owes it acquisitions to private collectors.


Collecting art is a passion that we share with them. They regularly donate works to the Museum or give artworks on long-term loan. Artists and their heirs also occasionally enrich our collection. All these means of support are important to a museum. They ensure that the collection is consistently reinforced and can move with the times and with its own environment.


Cooperation with the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed (Cultural Heritage Agency) plays a major role in strengthening of the collection through long-term loans. In addition, the Museum itself purchases artworks via galleries or at auctions. For this purpose, it receives money from the Municipality of Schiedam, and also from the Mondriaan Foundation and the Association of Friends of the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.


Thanks to collaboration with these parties, the collection has been superbly enhanced in the past few years. As a result, it is now possible for this Museum to give a diverse and reasonably comprehensive picture of developments in Dutch art since 1945.
