Introduction

The Clingenbosch estate lies in the region of the Randstad, just off the coast of Wassenaar. Integrated in the beautiful landscape, a private collection of modern and contemporary sculptures is ready to be discovered. Over sixty sculptures by Dutch and international artists like Henry Moore, Sol LeWitt, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Carel Visser en Atelier van Lieshout are there to be admired. Many of the works shown were commissioned especially for this location.

PROGRAM

The sculpture garden is open to visitors on Thursday afternoon from May until October. Visitors are accompanied by one of our experienced guides. At 15.00 hours we welcome you with a cup of tea and a short introduction about the garden. The walk along the  sculptures takes more than two hours with drinks and a bite at the end. It is an intensive walk mainly over unpaved paths. The program finishes at 18.00 hours. This arrangement costs 17,50 euros per person.

HISTORY

In 1995 the sculpture garden, located on an estate of about 25 hectares, was opened to the public. Various artists were invited to make a site-specific sculpture, like the British artist Anthony Gormley and the Dutch artist Armando. Our goal is to emphasis the different aspects of the landscape, and to integrate the sculptures as much as possible in the surrounding landscape. The location of the artworks is often determined in dialogue with the artists. Throughout the years sculpture collection has been constantly growing. For example, Berlinde de Bruyckere realised her first outdoor sculpture as a commission of the collection.
