Room Period Name Description
Large room 17 Nov. until Jan 26 2020 Reconstruction exhibition South Limburg art 1954 Stedelijk museum Amsterdam Reconstruction exhibition South Limburg art 1954 in Stedelijk museum Amsterdam.
The retrospective of this exhibition, which took place in 1954, has a cultural-historical and an artistic side. From a cultural-historical point of view, it is important to see the works exhibited at the time in combination with other works from that period in order to paint a correct picture of the times. The difference between the younger and the older artists is also evident. The young artists saw themselves as rebellious at the time. The exhibition also says something about modernity in Limburg. The image we have of the 1950s in Limburg is strongly determined by the dominant position of the Catholic Church and other authorities.
Charles Eijckzaal 17 Nov. until Jan 26 2020 Collection Schoonbroodt “South Limburg through the eyes of others” (1830- 1960), is the name of the Schoonbroodt family’s collection of paintings. Artists from outside the province enjoyed the beautiful landscape, villages and towns, churches and castles. A number settled definitively in South Limburg.
For more than 40 years, Giel and Roswitha Schoonbroodt, known for their international art trade Rococo, collected paintings from that period. A representative overview of their collection can be admired from 17 November 2019 to 26 January 2020 at Museum Valkenburg.
