The Monique Zajfen Collection is one of the largest and finest private collections of contemporary art in the Netherlands. It belongs to the Broere Foundation, initiator of the Vincent Award. The collection includes works by top contemporary artists like Marlene Dumas, Damien Hirst, Luc Tuymans, Thomas Schütte and Stephan Balkenhol, and is expanded following each edition of the Vincent Award by the acquisition of one of the prize-winner’s works. The collection and the art prize are therefore inextricably linked.
Since 2014, the organization of the Vincent Award has been in the hands of the Gemeentemuseum. For this reason, the museum also holds the related Monique Zajfen Collection on long-term loan. Here is a selection of works from the Monique Zajfen Collection.
