Collection of the Groninger Museum

Ploeg Pavilion

29 March 2014 to 31 December 2018

A porcelain service by museum architect Alessandro Mendini; 19 century paintings. One by one, famous works from the permanent collection steal the show. Regional treasures, including a silver miniature of the Martinitoren, portraits of leading local citizens like Aletta Jacobs, and Bronze Age jewellery, beautifully reflect the culture of the city and province of Groningen. Through their expressionist use of colour, members of the local artists’ association De Ploeg bring to life the region’s distinctive farm landscapes as well as portraits and city scenes.
