Art Lending Library Maassluis
More and more private individuals, companies and institutions choose to lease art to beautify their interiors. In Maassluis, this can be done through the Stichting Kunstuitleen Maassluis, a foundation that runs the art lending library. It manages a collection of no less than 500 works of art. Apart from paintings, prints and etchings, the collection also includes sculptures and other artefacts. Often, if someone can no longer part with a piece of art, buying it is also an option. The Art Lending Library runs entirely on volunteers and is definitely worth a visit!
