Job application with Helene Kröller-Müller

Willy Auping jr.’s job application is not entirely plain sailing. The procedure ultimately takes almost a year before he is hired as assistant secretary of the Rijksmuseum Kröller-Müller. Auping’s letters mainly demonstrate his perseverance and great appreciation for the collection.
