About Vereniging Rembrandt

We are an independent membership-based organization that invests in the future of Dutch public art collections.

Since our founding in 1883, we have helped over 125 museums in the Netherlands realize over 2,000 art acquisitions. They range from the most costly, such as Johannes Vermeer's Milkmaid (ca. 1660) in the Rijksmuseum and Dale Chihuly's Grand Stairwell Installation (2018) in the Groninger Museum, to hundreds of more modest, but always more than locally relevant art purchases for dozens of smaller collections.


To help Dutch museums use their collections to their fullest potential, the Vereniging Rembrandt started in 2012 to provide research bursaries. Because these bursaries are meant for recently graduated art historians, they also help aspiring young curators gain relevant museum experience.


Treasures in our public art collections deserve to be accessible to everyone. The Vereniging Rembrandt therefore started in 2018 to help Dutch museums revive cherished works of art that, because of condition issues, have been relegated to the reserves. We initially started supporting restoration projects with the help of the VriendenLoterij, but recently also other donors have stepped up to help with this cause.
