The Stedelijk Museum specialises in art from the mid-nineteenth century to the present and is the most important museum of modern and contemporary art in the Netherlands.
Originally specialising in French and Dutch painting from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the collection now contains work from a wide selection of movements. These include de Stijl, Nouveau Réalisme, Colorfield, CoBrA and Pop Art; as well pieces by individual artists such as de Kooning, Warhol, Chagall, Gilbert & George, Mondrian and Kandinsky.
To the side of the museum is a sculpture garden featuring work by Henry Moore, Wessel Couzijn, Volten and Wouters, whilst sculptures by Rodin and Renoir are housed inside the museum.
