Axel Rüger

3 September 2018

Axel Rüger has overseen major renovations to the Van Gogh Museum since becoming its director in 2006, including a full redisplay of the permanent collection and the construction of a new entrance building on the Museumplein in Amsterdam. Meanwhile, the museum’s exhibition and research programmes go from strength to strength. After working in a number of American museums, from 1999–2006 Rüger was curator of Dutch paintings at the National Gallery in London, where he curated the highly acclaimed ‘Vermeer and the Delft School’ and an exhibition on Aelbert Cuyp; he has published and lectured widely on 17th-century Dutch art. He is a trustee of the Art Fund.
