Jewish Virtual Museum

Welcome to the Jewish Virtual Museum, founded by a private collector who wants to exhibit his collection of Dutch Jewish painters and Jewish paintings.

The internet offers a wonderful opportunity for this. You do not pay an admission fee, the paintings are not physically present, and moreover there is much more to be seen digitally because zooming in and out and many detail shots have been made visible.

The collection consists of 4 parts, arranged according to the artist’s time of death.

The first part contains the works that were made in the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, and whose makers died before May 1940.

The second part has the title; “They must not be forgotten”, these are the works of the artists who perished during the war in the years 1940-1945. Many of them have remained unknown, partly because their studios have been looted and their paintings have been destroyed and / or disappeared.

The third part contains work by the artists who survived the war and made the consequences of the war visible in their work. Other post-war artists will also be given a place.

The fourth part is a homage to the non-Jewish painter Gerard Johan Staller, who lived in the midst of the disappeared Jewish quarter of Amsterdam in the years 1915-1930, where hundreds of paintings recorded the Jewish life of market vendors and other residents. .

The website is on the move, comments and comments are highly appreciated. The aim is to collect even more information about the artists and their works.

The starting point is the existing collection. Because there are no works available on the open market of some famous artists, they are missing.

Hopefully, for example, Max van Dam and Leo Kok will be added in the future. A monograph has appeared about both:

  • Max van Dam, Jewish Artist 1910-1943, a publication of the museum association in Winterswijk, 1986.
