In Sight

"In Sight. Thoughts on the collection of De Nederlandsche Bank" shows how DNB's art collection has developed over the years. DNB President Klaas Knot states in the introduction that "visual artists are ideally placed – consciously, intentionally or simply by keeping an open mind – to capture the essence of their era in a work of art."

Throughout the years, the Art Committee has built up a consistent and balanced collection, with increasing attention to the substance and underlying ideas of artwork. With a keen eye and an open mind, it has sought out works of young and talented artists, ensuring that DNB's core values are reflected in its art collection.
