Highlights of the collection
Cobra Museum of Modern Art
The Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen houses a impressive collection of Cobra art. In only a few years, an inventive purchasing policy has meant that the size of the collection is such that the museum is able to show a magnificent selection of work by diverse Cobra artists, now presented in this museum guide.
Each artist, From Karel Appel to Theo Wolvecamp, is introduced alphabetically, with a lucid description of their life and work followed by highlights from their oeuvre. An introduction to the history of the Cobra movement makes the guide highly suitable for teaching purposes and as a first or renewed acquaintance with one of the twentieth century's most talked-about artistic movements.
