Major gift for De Pont
Willem de Kooning, Untitled XV, 1981
By way of this gift, the generous donor, Mrs. IJ.S.W. de Wilde-Reinhold wishes to express her appreciation of the museum in Tilburg.
Her husband, the former director of Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum Edy de Wilde who died in 2005, served on De Pont's board for more than ten years, as of the museum's founding in 1989.
Both Mrs. De Wilde-Reinhold and her husband had a strong connection with the museum, and she particularly values the ongoing interest that De Pont shows for painting. With the work by De Kooning, the museum will be able to provide this with greater depth and character.
