How do we view the world around us? Artists excel at providing unexpected answers to this question. Our vision of the world is naturally formed by where and when we live, but it is also influenced by coincidence, an unexpected event and developments that sometimes continue for centuries. This means that the question ‘What do we see exactly?’ is perhaps even more interesting. Artists from the Rabo Art Collection reflect on these questions through their work.

Collecting art results in more than a mere sum of objects. After a time, unexpected connections and contrasts arise within a col¬lection. As a colorful balance that strikes the eye, the work Pairs by Maria Roosen can be considered a prelude to the Rabo Art Collection’s ‘character sketch’. Both the foundations and the leitmotif of this collection have been brought into focus through the work of significant artists. The underlying principle: it begins with the artist.
