Gift idea for December: the catalog of Kees van Dongen
Gift idea for December: the catalog of Kees van Dongen

In our museum shop you can find a variety of gifts for Christmas stockings or to go under the tree. From contemporary Dutch design and amusing gadgets to catalogues of various exhibitions. Well worth considering is the magnificent catalogue about Kees van Dongen, for example, in which guest curator Anita Hopmans gives a fascinating description of the development that Kees van Dongen underwent and his significance in international modern art in the early decades of the twentieth century. The book is lavishly illustrated with full page illustrations of all the exhibited works, biographical images, studio photographs, posters and postcards that Van Dongen sent to family and friends.

Take a look at our webshop. Since 2005 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has published almost all its own publications. Each year the list gets longer as we add lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogues, stock catalogues and scholarly works about our own collection of works of art, prints and drawings, design, applied art, fashion and photography. The publications are produced on our own initiative or in collaboration with artists or other museums. All of these exceptional publications are now available in the webshop.
