Museum Catharijneconvent

The national museum of religious art in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The Museum Catharijneconvent has an extensive collection of (art)historical objects from the early Middle Ages to the present. The vast collection presents a picture of Protestant and Catholic art and cultural history of the Netherlands and the impact of that history on Dutch society. The collection includes, among other richly illustrated manuscripts, bookbindings decorated with precious stones, richly-worked images, paintings, altarpieces, clothing and ecclesiastical objects in gold and silver. One of the highlights of the collection is ivory-work from the early medieval Lebuinuskelk.

Dutch painting of the 16th and 17th centuries is represented by works by Jan van Scorel, Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Pieter Saenredam. The collection also presents more recent Dutch art work by Jan Toorop, Shinkichi Tajiri, Frans Franciscus and Marc Mulders.
