Boijmans Studies

In 2007, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen started a series of academic publications about its own collection: the ‘Boijmans Studies’. This breaths new life into the rich tradition the museum can boast in publications about its collection (in particular, collection catalogues). The aim is to produce two publications each year.

The series is intended to include a wide range of research, which can be about a single work, or a sub-collection or relating to the history of the museum. It can be a collection catalogue, a report about a restoration, or an essay about a subject. The common denominator is Museum Boijmans van Beuningen’s collection. The aim of the publication is to document and make accessible the in-house collections and the museum history by publishing research. This takes place in an accessible, public-friendly manner. The publications are preferably linked to an exhibition. In addition to the museum’s own curators, contributions as researcher and author are also invited from external specialists.

The publication of the series is supervised by an editorial board:
- dr. Peter van der Coelen, curator prints and drawings 
- dr. Albert J. Elen, senior curator prints and drawings
- drs. Els Hoek, editor
- drs. Maartje de Jong, editor and assistant funds
- drs. Saskia van Kampen-Prein, curator contemporary and modern art
- drs. Sabine Terra, project leader publications
- drs. Patty Wageman, head collections and research

Several of these publications came about thanks to the support of third parties: the Mondriaan Foundation, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Foundation, the A.H. Foundation, Martens van Sevenhoven and the Foundation for Promoting National Heritage.
