Gemeentemuseum\city museum, The Hague: 18 reviews and 25 photos

by RoyJava

The famous Gemeentemuseum (yes, is just one word, translated "museum of municipal") was built in 1935 by H.P. Berlage. The museum houses modern works, expressionists and many paintings by MONDRIAAN. See The Hague silver and porcelain (open Tuesday till Sunday from 11.00 - 17.00 hrs), and go for a walk in the attractive gardens near the lake ...

When passing the Gemeentemuseum walking down the Stadhouderslaan you'll see the famous negro-like woman-photograph. Come closer and, you'll notice the white model covered with coffee beans. The photograph (named "Coffee") has been shot by Dutch well-known fashion photographer Marcel Van De Vlugt for his item "I Like", for now to be seen at the Gemeentemuseum.
