Lavish, colorful, exhilarating
Each spring, the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem literally blossoms. But just before opening of Museum in bloom, the museum had to temporarily close its doors due to government measures against the corona virus. Frans Hals, however, likes his flowers so much. That is why this autumn the rooms showcasing old masters and contemporary art will be adorned with magnificent floral creations arranged in the most beautiful of the museum’s historic vase collection, which is temporarily augmented by a selection of loaned works.
It’s a rare sight: fresh flowers and plants in a museum hall. Yet once a year, the Frans Hals Museum’s Hof building proves that it’s perfectly possible under strict conditions, and the museum assumes a distinct homely and floral air.
Museum in Bloom is made possible thanks to a close collaboration with the Friends of the Frans Hals Museum.
