Collections come together
The exhibition at Museum Rotterdam introduces visitors to six artists who were born in Rotterdam and lived and worked in the city from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. It brings together paintings, props and other objects to reveal the studio secrets of Hendrick Sorgh, Pieter de Hooch, Nicolaes Muys, George Hendrik Breitner, Kees van Dongen and Dolf Henkes. Where did they buy their art supplies? Who modelled for them? Uniting the collections of Museum Rotterdam and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen reveals the secrets of these Rotterdam-based artists.
