Collection of Beelden aan Zee

 

Since 1994, Museum Beelden aan Zee has focused on acquiring and displaying figurative sculpture. Specifically, the representation of the human figure was central to the collector couple Scholten. Yet gradually, through targeted purchases, careful attention was also paid to abstract, or rather, non-figurative sculpture. For example, work by Anthony Caro, Shinkichi Tajiri and Berend Bodenkamp was purchased. Particularly through donations from private individuals, the collection has been rapidly enriched in this area in recent years with a large number of fine examples. Sculptures by various artists such as Cornelius Rogge, David Vandekop, André Volten, Nabuqi, Erik van Spronsen, Piet Killaars and Lon Pennock were accepted. This makes the museum even better able to provide an overview of (Dutch) sculpture. It is high time to share this important development in the collection policy with the public.
