Canon Europe and Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum and Canon Europe have established a partnership. Canon will sponsor the museum for a period of 3 years. The museum increasingly engages innovative digital programs and tools in order to enhance the awareness for scientific and educational projects amongst a wider public. An innovative partner such as Canon – a world leader in digital imaging solutions – can offer useful knowledge and expertise in order to support the museum in the development of these activities.

Just as the Van Gogh Museum, Canon has a strong international reputation and a vast heritage.  Canon's sponsorship of the Van Gogh museum extends its long history as a supporter of culture and the arts in Europe.  In addition, a large focus group of The Van Gogh Museum consists of visitors from abroad and therefore the museum explicitly targets its presentations to foreign countries such as Japan – Canon’s home country.

Rokus van Iperen, President & CEO, Canon Europe, Middle East and Africa:  “Canon strongly believes in the power of image and at the Van Gogh Museum everything revolves around the impact that images - especially paintings - have on the visitors. The Van Gogh Museum is not only renowned in The Netherlands but also worldwide. We are therefore very proud to be associated with one of the world’s finest institutions and to be able to offer our expertise in digital imaging.”
