Modern Art
Since 1999, the museum owns a collection of works by Cobra and École de Paris. This donation by family Roef-Meelker contains works by Bissière, Manessier, De Staël, Appel, Constant, Corneille, Jorn, Hepworth and Masson. The collection spans the period between 1920 and 1960 and precedes the museum’s contemporary art collection, a selection of which can be seen in the Boscotondo Hall.
The Municipal Museum’s Boscotondo Hall is part of the so-called Boscotondo Complex in the city center of Helmond. The complex was designed by Italian architect Adolfo Natalini. Besides the museum, it also hosts an administrative center, a cinema, an art cinema and residential apartments.
The Boscotondo Hall stands out thanks to its high cylindrical entrance with its extraordinary bronze coping. The two stories of the building are connected with a spiral staircase encased in glass. The ground floor has an exhibition room of between 200 and 250 m2. The first floor is almost entirely dedicated to special exhibitions. The entire exhibition surface measures between 600 and 650 m2. The Boscotondo Hall also has two large depots and an atelier for exhibition projects.
Boscotondo is Italian for “round forest”. The architect built the residential complex in a circle surrounding a square with trees.
