After a period of renovations Kranenburgh opens its beautiful new building to the public on November 12th with the exhibition Wonder. Two days before the official opening I was at the museum for a sneak preview of the exhibition. It was amazing to see the work Portret of Mati from 1946 hang next to the Portrait of Victor (Mati & Constant's son) from that same year.
