Foundation Art and Heritage ABN AMRO

ABN AMRO is one of the oldest and largest banks of the Netherlands and over the course of time it has amassed an impressive collection of artworks and historical objects. The works of the collection are not only used to decorate the bank’s own offices but are also made available for exhibitions, loans, historical research and publications. The unique ABN AMRO collection is a reflection of the role the bank has played in society right up to the present day.

Foundation

ABN AMRO’s Art & History Foundation (Stichting Kunst & Historisch Bezit ABN AMRO) was created to maintain, manage and develop ABN AMRO’s collection of art and historical objects. The foundation sees the collection as part of our national heritage and endeavours to make it as accessible as possible for the general public. It exhibits artworks and historical objects in the buildings of the bank and makes material available for study. We also lend objects to leading museums and other institutions.
