Rabo kunstcollectie

Rabo Art Collection

Since 1995, Rabobank has been building up a contemporary art collection featuring both Dutch and international artists. In collaboration with the artists, key works are selected that mark a milestone in their artistic life and that tell the artist’s story. These works also reflect the development of modern Dutch art since 1950. Three storylines predominate in the collection: people, society and ideas.
