Collection

The KPMG art collection is an embellishment of the office interiors and creates a pleasant working environment. It also serves as a means of communication by displaying the works of art in external exhibition or on loan.
The board of the Foundation consist of KPMG partners and one external board member. The board stresses the importance of the collection by displaying the works of art in all KPMG offices. Besides our own collection, the Foundation rents art works at two major, national art companies. These works complete our own collection.

Art policy
The art collection consists of works from contemporary, young and promising artists who have a relation with the Netherlands either by working there or because they finished their studies in the Netherlands.

History
Since 1990 KPMG has been collecting works of art. Since 2006 the art policy has been carried out by separate foundation within the KPMG network.
