Geologist turns art collector

Putting an end to one career and starting a new one all on the same day does not happen that often

Nevertheless that is what Dr Nico van Breemen has decided to do. On 30 September at 11.30 his new art gallery will be officially opened, and at four o’clock on the same day he will give his farewell speech as he leaves Wageningen UR, where he has worked since 1986. The opening exhibition is devoted to themes that Van Breemen has dealt with during his career as soil expert and geo-ecologist: light, air, earth and the circle of life.
