Launch year:

Artistic domain:

Rabobank has been dedicated to developing a leading collection of art since 1995. This is done in close cooperation with artists. Together we select key works that mark a change in their oeuvre. Pieces that do not just tell the artist's story, but also reflect a period in art history.

With this as our basic philosophy, we are building a leading collection of contemporary art. The selected artists are considered the driving forces and catalysts of their era. While the emphasis is on Dutch artists, the collection also includes works from international artists to reflect Rabobank’s international scope.

Status of collection:
International
