Kröller-Müller refers to the name of Helene Müller, the daughter of a wealthy German industrialist. Helen married the Dutch Anton Kröller, an employee of her father’s corporation who eventually took over the company. The couple moved to The Hague, where they became a regular sight in the upper classes of The Hague’s bourgeois society. The story took an interesting turn when Helene fell under the spell of Bremmer, a mediocre painter who appealed to Dutch women in highest of social circles, teaching them the love of art.

Her dream was to find a museum for her ever growing art collection, to show the future generation how refined a rich merchant family at the turn of the century looked like. She had the problem of finding the right location for her museum and she ended up donating her whole collection to the state of the Netherlands 1n 1935. In 1938, the museum, which was designed by Henry van de Velde, opened to the public. The sculpture garden was added in 1961 and the new exhibition wing, designed by Wim Quist, opened in 1977. Helen died at the age of 70, eighteen months after the museum was opened.

The Kröller-Müller Museum is also famous for its large sculpture garden, within the forest park of more than 75 acres which is one of the largest in Europe. The garden reflects Helene Kröller-Müller\\\'s conception of a symbiosis between art, architecture and nature. The garden is surrounded by trees and flowering plants, ponds and bushes. Romantic paths lead you to the fine collection of modern and contemporary sculptures on the grounds of the museum, once part of the huge private estate of the Kröller-Müller couple. The collection includes works by Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, Jean Dubuffet, Mark di Suvero, Lucio Fontana, Claes Oldenburg, Fritz Wotruba, Joep van Lieshout and many more.
