The New Generation

Ask anything

  • caroline gerlach asked

    Is the frame that "the new generation" is exhibited in the original frame?
    Also, could you please give me some information on the ownership history of the painting?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Caroline,
    The frame of The New Generation is indeed the original frame. The painting was bought in 1949 at an auction house in Den Haag by our then director J.C. Ebbinge Wubben. It belonged to a private owner who bought the work from Jan Toorop himself. For a long time it decorated the study of the Dutch poet.
    Kind regards,
