Meet Henriette

Rendezvous with a visionary woman

A museum as homage: this is what Henriette Mayer van den Bergh (1838–1920) achieved in the space of barely three years. After the sudden death of her son Fritz, she realized his unfulfilled wish: to open a museum devoted to his breathtaking collection. Following the opening of the museum, Henriette was hailed as a grande dame. Her enterprising, purposeful and resolute personality made a huge impression.


    Friday 10 November 2023 until Sunday 3 March 2024 from 10:00 to 17:00

15 contemporary artists look at the Fritz Mayer van den Bergh collection and enter into a dialogue with centuries-old paintings, modest sculptures and lavish retables. An intriguing blend of old and new where you examine the work with a fresh pair of eyes.
