Art with a big A

..a modern, innovative wardrobe

Art with a big A. It’s the combination of contemporary art and the old masters that intrigues me. Upon entering Boijmans van Beuningen, a world renowned museum, the first thing that attracts the eye is the modern, innovative wardrobe. The museum packed with millions of euro’s of art, is almost more famous for the way you can hang your coat. On weekdays it’s wonderful to walk around. Not to busy. So thats why I decided to make thursday museumday. It’s a little me time. There is this somewhat undefinable peace and quit in this place, which is wonderful while looking at Frans Hals, Picasso and Salvador Dali. Alongside the basic collection of art, Boijmans regurlarly organises new exhibitions. Like the original work of Salvador Dali. For more than two hours I walk around and order myself a cappucino at the bar looking out on the famous rose garden. Boijmans is art with a big A.

….Frans Hals, Picasso and Salvador Dali.
