Ebbinge, Eric

Director of Teylers Museum (1983 2001) (B. 1940)

Since 1983, Teylers Museum has been run not only by its Foundation, but also by its own director. The first*, from 1983 to 2001, was Eric Ebbinge, who originally studied law in Amsterdam, and who also attended a visual arts course in Haarlem.

It was under his directorship that work took place on Teylers' Zegelwaarden workshops and depot, and on Hubert Jan Henket's new building in 1996. Ebbinge thus helped reinforce the Museum's identity as the Netherlands' oldest museum, to which he simultaneously added a strong contemporary dimension. With the acquisition of work by artists such as Lucassen, Waldo Bien, Helen Frik, Otto Egberts and Marlene Dumas, he also breathed new life into contemporary drawing.

*) ‘First' is not strictly accurate, as Van Marum and Van Breda both held this position, but only within their own fields of study.
