A few months ago, Museum Voorlinden opened its doors. It’s a privately-owned museum for modern and contemporary art in Wassenaar (NL) that showcases the art collection of collector and industrial Joop van Caldenborgh – apparently the biggest privately owned one of the country. Parts of it are permanently on display (think of the Couple under an Umbrella by Ron Mueck, Leandro Erlich’s Swimming Pool and Richard Serra’s Open Ended sculpture), other parts are used for temporary expositions (such as the late Ellsworth Kelly Anthology which is on display until 8 January). The collection, the building, the surroundings as well as the effect of one on the other are superb and make it well worth the trip down country. I’ll be back next year for sure — in the meantime I’m going to find out how to get one of these green sofas for my house; aren’t they the best?!
