A delightful and varied exhibition about the natural world and experiencing it in Museum Belvédère, Landgoed Oranjewoud (the Oranjewoud estate), and the museum park. The focus inside the museum will be on modern and contemporary visual arts with flora and fauna as the subject. Central in the atmospheric Landgoed Oranjewoud country house are the nature albums by Jacques P. Thijsse (a Dutch conservationist and botanist), which he made for Verkade (a Dutch chocolate and biscuit manufacturing company) at the beginning of the last century. His informative texts and the high quality of the illustrations (by Jan Voerman Jr., Willem Wenckebach and Cornelis Rol) ensured that the albums soon became popular collector's items. And they still are... During Oase Oranjewoud, the original watercolours can be seen by the public for the first time in a long time. Works of art are the basis for intensifying the experience of nature and the landscape in the area between the museum and the country house. The Noorderlicht International Photofestival contributes to the subject with presentations in the museum and Oranjewoud’s leafy surroundings.
