On 6-8 July 2012, 77 paintings from America were exhibited in Vlissingen.
The film clip below was made by a visitor.

Origin and travel of these paintings
Jozef Rulof visited the United States three times, namely in 1946, 1947 and 1948.
He visited his brothers there who had emigrated to America earlier.
During those visits, his brothers sensed the extraordinary level of his mediumship and they set to work to also publish the books in America.
On these trips, he received many paintings, because the astral masters wanted to support his brothers in this way with this great work.
In the third part of the biography 'Jeus of Mother Crisje', Master Zelanus described these trips to America in the chapter: Spiritual deception in Holland, America and the rest of the world.
In this chapter, Master Zelanus explains to us, among other things, why they painted so much in America, and why so few paintings were ultimately sold.
After Jozef had left America, the paintings remained in the hands of his brothers Anton (Teun) and Hendrik.
After they had passed over to the spiritual life too, the paintings were kept by the son of Anton, Ron Rulof.
On 13 March 2009, Ron contacted the society.
His earthly lifetime had begun to diminish, and it was important to find a good administrator for the paintings.
We explained to him that the society was precisely set up in order to surpass the earthly lifetime of all its employees, volunteers and donors and to keep the entire estate of Jozef Rulof under one control.
This resulted in 77 paintings being transferred to the Netherlands.
In the photo, you can see from left to right Jozef, Hannie and Teun Rulof and at the front their son Ron. Teun is the youngest brother of Jozef.
Many of the 77 paintings required a thorough restoration, in order to preserve these paintings as optimally as possible for eternity.
This restoration was carried out in the period 2009-2012.
As a society, we ensure that they are then kept in the best possible conditions with regard to the temperature, humidity and safety, in order to make sure that the rigors of time have as little effect as possible on these masterpieces.
