De Pont Museum

I had arranged to see the Sean Scully exhibition at the De Pont Museum in Tilburg.   The Museum was established with an endowment from the estate of Jan de Pont, a lawyer and businessman who had bought a factory in Tilburg and wanted his estate to be spent on contemporary art.   In 1989, the trustees of the foundation hired Hendrik Driessen, who arranged for the purchase of an old textile spinning mill in Tilburg, renovated by BenthemCrouwel, an Amsterdam architectural firm; but it retains its character as industrial space and is said to have been one of the inspirations of Tate Modern:-
