The plancius art collection is an Amsterdam based private initiative of two friends, aimed at supporting artists and new positions within contemporary visual art. This website gives an overview of the works that are part of the collection.

The plancius art collection started in 2006 as the result of the discussions and cooperation between the two owners. It has no formal structure or goal, other than to make an exceptional collection of contemporary art for personal use. The works are made after the year 2000 within a wide variety of media. For the most part there is a direct connection to the contemporary art scene in the Netherlands.

The name Plancius was chosen after the 16th century cartographer Petrus Plancius, who’s visionary methods for mapping the world seemed suiting and exemplary for a collection aimed at the mostly unchartered world of contemporary art. Plancius is also the name of the restaurant in Amsterdam where the idea for the collection was born, late 2005.
