Since its creation in 1948 in Paris, the Cobra movement has brought something of a revolution in the Netherlands and a breakthrough for modern art. Cobra artists were searching for perpetual authenticity, far from any artificial expression present in the art of their era. Fascinated by the irrational and primitive, they come together in this place with its magical and impressive architecture. 



A rediscovered heritage




The Cobra museum sees to it that the heritage of these international artists remains accessible to all and that the intellectual reach of the movement is remains firmly fixed in people's minds. This conservation work is admirable, especially when you consider that the movement only lasted three short years. The museum boasts being a centre of expertise for this movement, where artistic experimentation is emphasised.

A Dantesque trend




In addition to the Cobra collection, a good number of cultural and educational activities are put on to bring the work of these artists to a wider audience. Cobra is synonymous with creative freedom and ambition, which often inspires me in my own thoughts. I've always been fascinated by this artistic movement.
