The Leiden Collection

The Leiden Collection, founded by Thomas S. Kaplan and Daphne Recanati Kaplan, is one of the largest and most significant private collections of seventeenth-century Dutch art in the world.

“Working with Cuberis continues to be an excellent experience. We first engaged the Cuberis team to enhance our exhibition website in adherence to a tight deadline. The entire project was smooth, from our initial interactions through the site’s deployment. We then embarked on a site re-design and unification project, bringing together the Collection’s two separate websites under one umbrella. The team’s passion for and dedication to the project is evident in the final product, which is a site that is eye-catching and simultaneously user-friendly. In addition, the back-end of the site has been thoroughly thought through and allows for us to easily make updates. Perhaps of utmost importance is the open dialogue we have had with the Cuberis team, the members of which are communicative and accessible. We are continually impressed with the team’s passion and proficiency.”
