Throughout the history of Huize Frankendael, art has played an important role in the lives of its residents. Eighteenth-century owner Jan Gildemeester Jansz, for instance, was an avid collector of paintings, drawings and prints by seventeenth-century masters, and even had himself painted amid his collection by Adriaan de Lelie in 1795. In recent years, the Frankendael Foundation has continued this historical notion of “the collectors’ house” by inviting private collectors to share their personal favorites with us.

For the first time, this exhibition gathers works from various collectors linked by the Young Collectors Circle. Art historian and curator Julia Mullié was asked to create ‘The Image of a Private Collection’ with photographic works showing the interests of its members. As these works enter into a dialog with Huize Frankendael, they offer a unique view of its history and shed light on the contemporary practice of collecting.
