The Chabot Museum (Dutch pronunciation: [ʃaːˈbɔt myˈzeːjɵm]) is a museum dedicated to the Dutch painter and sculptor Hendrik Chabot in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The museum is housed in a monumental villa in the Museumpark, near the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and the Netherlands Architecture Institute.

Building[edit]

The Chabot Museum is located at the Museumpark in Rotterdam Centrum,[1] between the Netherlands Architecture Institute and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

It is housed in a white villa designed in 1938 for C. H. Kraaijeveld in the style of New Objectivity by architects Gerrit Willem Baas, a former employee of Brinkman and Van der Vlugt, and Leonard Stokla, a former bureau chief of Kromhout.

The villa has been a rijksmonument (national heritage site) since 2000.[2]

Collection[edit]

The museum is dedicated to painter and sculptor Hendrik Chabot. The museum collection includes works from the 1920s from the Schortemeijer collection and 26 works from the Second World War from the private collection of Mrs. Toll-Breugem.
