The Van Gogh Museum is relatively youthful by museum standards, having first opened in 1973. Since then it has become one of the world’s leading art museums. It owes its reputation to its unique collection, made up of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works from the period 1840 to 1920. The core of the collection is its Vincent Van Gogh archive, the largest collection of his work in the world. Safe and efficient storage is of key importance, so when the Museum was looking to increase its storage capacity, it approached Bruynzeel.
The museum’s storage for framed artwork has been extended with Bruynzeel’s artwork storage system. In the latest version, the wheels in the top track are made of plastic, so no damage can occur by accidental steel cutting or conduction. In addition, the Artestore Penda range is completely emission-free due to its 100 per cent epoxy coating.
