Joods Historisch Museum, Amsterdam
October 27, 2010
Jewish Historic Museum's exposition
called 'Daring to Collect', where this title
refers to special purchases of art by Jewish
collectors from the end of the 19th century.
As visionaries they behaved contrarily at
that time. Purchases were called by others
as a joke. Particularly the paintings of
Chagall viewed with incomprehension.
Sal Slijper (collector) was seen as the
patron of Piet Mondriaan. They became
friends and Slijper bought a lot of his
works. All the purchased work ended up
very well in the Gemeente Museum* in
