Ronald de Leeuw Research Grant to David de Haan

Since 2009, the Van Gogh Museum has awarded the Ronald de Leeuw Research Grant each year. In 2014, the grant was awarded to David de Haan. He conducts archive research into art reviews among Dutch art societies between 1830 and 1880. The members of these societies were increasingly drawn from the new class of wealthy citizens and the form of the art reviews changed accordingly.

Ronald de Leeuw Research Grant
Ronald de Leeuw was the director of the Van Gogh Museum between 1986 and 1996. He always promoted research into 19th-century art history. The grant is awarded to talented young researchers who graduated no more than three years earlier. The research proposals must concern a subject from Western European art history from the 1830-1914 period, related to the museum’s collection field. The grant is worth €5,000 and can be used to adapt a graduate dissertation or other current research for the purposes of a publication.
