Geert Steinmeijer, an private collector, has been fascinated by art ever since his first purchase in 1993, and has now assembled a varied and world-class collection. The exhibition includes mediaeval religious painting, American abstraction and French salon art. Steinmeijer also collects contemporary art from Germany and China, two countries he knows well, and the event provides an insight into the various worlds in which he moves. With this exhibition, Rijksmuseum Twenthe reflects on developments in art collecting and the rise of a new, much more diverse and subjective taste. The boundaries between good and bad taste, and between high and low art, have gradually dissolved. Today, anything goes. More than ever before, beauty is in the eye of the beholder – but that doesn’t mean we should avoid discussing what we mean by taste. Visitors to this exhibition are challenged to think about their own tastes, just as Steinmeijer does. 00Exhibition: Rijksmuseum Twenthe, (17.01.-21.08.2016).
