Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage > 100 highlights

V. Herz, Lying figure ca. 1937

This selection features 100 of the finest works from the ICN collection: 50 paintings and 50 applied arts objects, half of which are old and half of which are modern. The selection contains numerous well-known works, including The Eavesdropper by Nicolaas Maes, Tulip fields with the Rijnsburg Windmill by Claude Monet, Marc Chagall’s Self-portrait with seven fingers, and Victory Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian. The applied arts section contains unknown treasures, such as Red teapot with polychromic decoration and set grenades from Dresden, a seventeenth-century Star cabinet inlaid with ivory, and a Playing Table designed by Mathieu Lauweriks.

Most of these objects are on loan to museums all over the Netherlands and are therefore available to everyone. A smaller part is located at government institutions such as ministries and embassies, and therefore only has limited accessibility.
