Please note: from 1 December 2018 until the opening of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen (at the end of 2020), the Print Room will be closed for visitors because of preparations for the move of the museum. The exhibition space of the Print Room is accessible until 26 May 2019.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s print room houses a world-famous collection of 15,000 drawings and 65,000 prints. Because works on paper are very sensitive to light, they are exhibited only for short periods in changing displays. But you can also make an appointment to look at works in the print room.
The collection is considered one of the finest in the world. It features drawings by German, Dutch, French and Italian masters such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens, Dürer and Rembrandt, and modern and contemporary artists from Degas and Cézanne to Yayoi Kusama.
Digital print depot
The print room also features a permanent digital presentation of approximately a thousand prints and drawings by more than a hundred artists from all periods. The digital programme allows you to select works, enlarge details and save your selection.
