On the occasion of professor Sanders’ 100th birthday, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is organizing an exhibition of over 100 works from the private collection of Piet and Ida Sanders. In addititon to private collector and promotor of the arts, Piet Sanders also was professor at the Faculty of Law of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. In post-war European relations, his was a role of considerable importance.
To thank professor Piet Sanders for his efforts in promoting the arts at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the university is organizing the exhibition Piet Sanders: A Life with Art.
Professor Sanders was the founder of the Erasmus art collection. Nowadays, many artworks are dotted around the university grounds also thanks to him.
