The goals of AAH are:
- to promote art in general and in particular Netherlandish art
- to maintain and improve (knowledge of) the collection through acquisitions, participation in research and exhibitions, and its restoration program.
- to make its collection known to a wider public through an active, international loan program
- to produce comprehensive catalogues of its collection. A first milestone was the publication in English of Dutch and Flemish Old Masters from the Kremer Collection in 2002. In July 2008 new, updated catalogues were published with 48 works in German and Dutch. In October 2011 a new, updated catalogue was published with 57 works in French in cooperation with the Pinacotheque de Paris.
The collection presently (as of May 2012) contains 61 paintings and copperplates by Dutch and Flemish masters, some of which have not (yet) been published. Many great figures are represented, including Hendrick ter Brugghen, Gerrit Dou, Frans Hals and Rembrandt (4 works). What makes the collection in part so special, is the large number of images with an intriguing story behind them.
