An appeal for paintings

Mapping locations

Portrait of Albert van Raalte, conductor of the Jewish Symphony Orchestra (oil paint on canvas)In the course of research conducted recently for the new exhibition, it emerged that the Hollandsche Schouwburg was also used as an art gallery in the spring of 1942. The Van Leer Foundation organized a campaign that year to support Jewish artists by purchasing their work. These works were exhibited at the Hollandsche Schouwburg ('Joodsche Schouwburg') from early April until the end of June 1942, after which they were distributed on loan to the premises of diverse official Jewish institutions.

The research department of the Hollandsche Schouwburg plans to draw up an inventory of the current whereabouts of the artworks concerned, brief descriptions of which are given below, and is asking the general public to help it do so.
