Like an epic poem in various shades of blue, dozens of works from the Voorlinden collection are brought together in the cabinets of the museum.

The title Rhapsody in Blue refers to the piece of music by the American composer George Gershwin (1898-1937) from 1924. A musical kaleidoscope, in which he combines rhythms and melodies of jazz with elements from classical music.

Neglecting the existing categories of movements, periods, styles and media these galleries show a selection from the modern and contemporary art collection that has been arranged based on their hues of blue. In this way, the presentation offers a new perspective of looking at these individual works.
