We are specialized in Dutch and Flemish Old Master Paintings. Over the last 50 years Hoogsteder has realized 20 exhibitions and made loans available to 185 museum exhibitions worldwide.
Recently an important loan was negotiated for the Rembrandt-Velásquez exhibition in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
Through its loans and exhibitions, the Hoogsteder Museum Foundation aims to promote the art and culture of The Netherlands of the 17th century.

Museum Bredius houses an exquisite collection acquired by nineteenth-century collector Abraham Bredius, director of the Mauritshuis for many years.
Hoogsteder & Hoogsteder are closely involved in the organisation of the museum. When local government cuts forced the museum to close in 1985, John Hoogsteder personally ensured that the museum was able to reopen in 1990. When the museum found itself in difficulties in 1995, Hoogsteder purchased Lange Vijverberg 16 and rented it to the museum for the symbolic amount of one Dutch guilder.
In 2011, John Hoogsteder was appointed officer of the Order of Orange-Nassau for his work for Museum Bredius, an award given to people who made an exceptional contribution to society.
Both Hoogsteders, father and son, remain closely involved with the museum, as members of the board and as curators, hosting many successful exhibitions.
Visit the MUSEUM BREDIUS website for more information.
