De Gastvrije Stad

For the celebration of “50 jaar Zaanstad”, Stichting Monet in Zaandam organises the exhibition ‘De Gastvrije Stad’ from June to October 2024. For said exhibition, we are looking for artists who would like to contribute and have, just like Monet, fled their country.

“…Zaandam is particularly remarkable and there is enough to paint for a lifetime; I believe that we have found excellent accommodation. The Dutch made a very pleasant and hospitable impression”.

(Claude Monet, June 2, 1871)
