KunstKoppels on Tuesday 17 March is cancelled

In line with national policy relating to the corona virus, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will remain closed to the public until further notice. All events and activities will not take place during this period. 

We hope to welcome you again soon!

Stay tuned!

On Tuesday 17 March, the Kunsthal Rotterdam, in collaboration with the meeting platform Klup and Stichting Oud Geleerd Jong Gedaan, is organising another edition of 'KunstKoppels' (ArtCouples). During KunstKoppels you will meet someone in the Kunsthal who is completely new and unknown to you. Someone from another generation, or with a different background or lifestyle. This edition is dedicated to the exhibition 'Masterly. Four Centuries of Drawing and Painting'. After an introduction, the KunstKoppels will visit the exhibition and together, through a number of assignments, you will look at the drawings and paintings of famous masters as well as lesser known artists and talk about what you see and experience. The operating language of KunstKoppels is Dutch.

'Meesterlijk!' presents a large overview of four centuries of paintings and drawings from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. In over 150 works, the exhibition shows the mastery of 27 artists who excel in both art forms. You will see famous masters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Gogh, Delacroix, Pissarro, Saenredam, Goltzius and Basquiat, as well as works by lesser known artists including the Dutch Cornelis Saftleven and Josephus Augustus Knip. 'Meesterlijk!' highlights the special interaction between drawing and painting and shows the love of great masters for drawing.
