Donation to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen by Hans Sonnenberg

In 2000 Hans Sonnenberg, gallery owner in Rotterdam, donated fifteen outstanding works of art to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. They included works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Blake, David Hockney and Peter Saul.

Hans Sonnenberg died on 29 September 2017, 89 years of age. After his death Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen once again was given an opportunity to acquire a number of works of art from his private collection.

My cheap violin and my cross (2002) by Arie van Geest was chosen. Consequently this work was added to his other paintings already in the museum collection: The lucky painter (1975), Anna (1977) and Reading Gaol (1985).
