The goals of AAH are:
- to promote art in general and in particular Netherlandish art
- to grow the collection through acquisitions
- to maintain and improve (knowledge of) the collection participation in research, exhibitions, and its restoration program.
- to make its collection known to a wider public through an active, international loan program as well as its innovative new Virtual Reality Museum
- to promote art to new generations of arts & culture lovers, using VR technology, through our Mighty Masters program
Founded in 1994 by George and Ilone Kremer, the Kremer Collection is a privately owned group of around 80 works of 17th century Dutch and Flemish old masters. New acquisitions are made regularly, and many interesting schools and genres are represented throughout the Collection, such as Caravaggism/Utrecht, Leiden, Delft, Haarlem, Amsterdam, genre interiors, landscape painting, history painting, Italianate art, marines, and portraits.
The Collection contains masterpieces by, amongst others, Rembrandt, Abraham Bloemaert, Hendrick ter Brugghen, Gerrit Dou, Frans Hals, Meindert Hobbema, Gerrit van Honthorst, Pieter de Hooch, Jan Lievens, Paulus Moreelse, Michael Sweerts, Jan Baptist Weenix, and Emanuel de Witte.
Over the past 20 years, many of the works from the Collection have been on display in a variety of exhibitions and on long-term loans with international museums, including: The Mauritshuis, The Hague; the National Gallery, London; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
What makes the collection in part so special, is the large number of images with an intriguing story behind them.
