The Museum Boijmans has started a three-years project to catalogue its 440 drawings by Netherlandish (Dutch and Flemish) masters born before 1580. The project is sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science through the Mondrian Foundation. Two free-lance researchers have been hired to assist senior curator Dr. Albert Elen: Dr. Yvonne Bleyerveld and Judith Niessen MA will write the entries of most of the drawings. The scientific advisory committee includes specialists Prof.dr. Jan-Piet Filedt Kok, Prof.dr. Ilja Veldman, Prof.dr. Gert Jan van der Sman, Dr. Yvette Bruijnen and Marijn Schapelhouman MA. The catalogue will be published in 2012.
