“It was a great pleasure to receive so many visitors to the exhibition of our collection highlights at TEFAF Maastricht 2016. The title of the presentation, ‘Collecting Collectors’, referred to our long-term relationship with private collectors, which equally provides the focal point for the new Public Art Depot, which is to be realised in 2018, and which we proudly promoted at TEFAF.
