The true story behind Helene Kröller-Müller (in Dutch)
Date: Feb 6, 2011
Following the enthusiastic response to the book and film about Helene Kröller-Müller, the Kröller-Müller Museum is organising a lecture about this fascinating woman on February 6th, to be given by Eva Rovers (author of the biography). The lecture is free of charge and is to start at 12.00 p.m.
A chest filled with 3,400 letters heralded the start of an investigation into the true story behind Helene Kröller-Müller. Inspired by this unique discovery, Eva Roves wrote a fascinating biography about the most famous art collector of the Netherlands, who bought paintings by Van Gogh, Picasso and Mondriaan as if they were hats and handbags. Despite various setbacks Kröller-Müller succeeded in opening her own museum in 1938, a year before her death. However, she paid a high price for it.
