Museum Henriette Polak is the center for modern classic painting and sculpture in the Netherlands. Since its opening in 1975, Museum Henriette Polak has displayed the vitality, variety and vigor of figurative art, created by a combination of skill and inspiration.

Figurative art rooted in academic tradition

The eponymous patron Henriette Polak-Schwartz befriended artist Joop Sjollema in 1964. He convinced her of the necessity for a museum of Dutch figurative art, rooted in academic tradition. This initiative was contrary to the times, as museums mainly focused on abstract and conceptual art.
