Today The Volkskrant announced the happy news that the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag acquired the two Diorama's, 1962 by Constant. The museum adds the two models to the extensive New Babylon project that is already in their collection. The article headline in the Volkskrant reads: 'Kijkdozen' naar museum ('Peepshows' to museum).
The Diorama's have been a longterm loan to the museum given by Constant himself. The foundation for one is super excited that the two objects are now really part of the colection they belong to. The sale was financially backed up by both the Mondriaan Foundation and the Rembrand Foundation.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GEMEENTEMUSEUM!
