Boijmans in the War - Provenance Sought

on view Autumn 2018

In the autumn of 2018, the museum will reflect upon its own history during and immediately after the Second World War. In a multifaceted exhibition and a new publication in the ‘Boijmans Studies’ series, the museum will examine the role of its former directors, trustees and staff as well as that of artists and collectors during the war years. It will highlight the museum’s own provenance research on artworks that were acquired by the museum before, during and after the war. Finally, the exhibition will also explore the economic situation during the war and the museum’s building in Rotterdam. The exhibition coincides with the publication of a biography of Dirk Hannema, director of Museum Boymans from 1921 to 1945, by Prof. Dr Wessel Krul, planned for release on 1 October 2018.
