Museum Bredius Den Haag
Abraham Bredius was mainly known as a Rembrandt expert,
collector and director of the Royal Picture Gallery "Mauritshuis" in The Hague (from 1895 to 1922).
He was also a scientific investigator of historical archives.
In 1922 Abraham Bredius left Holland.
His house at Prinsegracht no.6 in the Hague, he sold to the municipality.
He gave his vast collection of 17-th century art on loan to the
municipality with the promise that he would bequeath it to them when he died.
Upon Bredius' death in 1946 the municipality of The Hague owned the collection.
From that moment, the 'Bredius Museum' was born.
