Ministers select favourite art

Home affairs minister Piet Hein Donner chooses a 17th century Bible as his favourite national treasure in the latest edition of the Rijksmuseum’s Oog magazine.

By contrast, foreign affairs minister Maxime Verhagen opts for Rem Koolhaas’s design for the Chinese state television service and environment minister Gerda Verburg picks a traditional Dutch cow.
