Please note: from 1 December 2018 until the opening of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen in 2021, the Print Room will be closed for visitors. The Prints and Drawings depot will be situated at the 5th floor of the Depot. Between 2019-2021 the Prints and Drawings Collections will be visible through the programmes Boijmans Next Door and Boijmans Abroad.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s print room houses a world-famous collection of circa 18,000 drawings and circa 69,000 prints. Because works on paper are very sensitive to light, they are exhibited only for short periods in changing displays.
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.
In the transit period of the museum, ongoing research projects will be continued, such as the collection catalogue of Italian Drawings 1400-1600. Read more about this The Getty Foundation Paper Project.
