The Dutch De Stadshof Collection Foundation is collector and keeper of a Solitary Creations art collection, around 6000 remarkable works of art, tracked down in 30 years by self-willed art lovers.

Since 2002 it is on long-term loan at the Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent, Belgium.

Solitary Creations is how we label works of art that are created outside the realms of mainstream art. It encompasses a wide range of creative expression, from outsider art, self-taught art, art brut, folk art and naive art. Solitary Creations bespeak of the dreams, fears and fascinations of artistically gifted people, and of the irrepressible creative urge of the homo ludens, the ever playing/playful human being.
