European Summer Must-Sees: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
Next up on gowithYamo's European Summer trip: Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum...

It may not be Tulip season but if you are a true art lover, Amsterdam beckons all year round. The Rijksmuseum is the largest art museum in the Netherlands with a huge annual visitation to match! It is home to the largest collection of Dutch masterpieces in the world, and should be top of any art-lovers’ to-do list when visiting Amsterdam.

The Night Watch | Rembrandt

Rembrandt's painting The Night Watch, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
The Night Watch, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, 1642

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (known simply as Rembrandt) was one of the greatest painters in European history and was a defining name of the Dutch Golden Age. Unlike most painters at that time, Rembrandt did not travel to Italy, but remained in the Netherlands making a name for himself in Leiden and Amsterdam. Despite not being well travelled, Caravaggio’s impressive and pioneering use of light known as chiaroscuro travelled to the Netherlands and its use can be seen throughout Rembrandt’s works. Rembrandt’s largest and most famous work The Night Watch can be found at the Rijksmuseum, and is viewed by 2.2 million per year. Instead of a stiff and formal collection of faces, the Kloveniers militia (a division of Amsterdam’s civic guard) were depicted as a quick snapshot of a lively scene whereby each member appeared to have been captured in the middle of doing something, bucking the conventions of formality in portraiture tradition.

Winter Landscape with Skaters | Hendrick Avercamp

Winter Landscape with Skaters, Hendrick Avercamp, 1608

Hendrick Avercamp was another prolific painter of the Dutch Golden Age, a non-verbal - and possibly deaf - artist who came to be known as the Mute of Kampen. His works specialised on winter scenes and he was well known for his skill at capturing the Arctic cold; even at the height of summer it is difficult not to shiver whilst beholding his Winter Landscape with1608 Skaters. Avercamp’s quiet life in Kampen in which he spent the majority of his time observing others translated to paintings full of atmospheric quality and each figure is delicately constructed whilst not losing the cohesion of a group. Although pleasure and cheer are depicted in his works, Avercamp does not shy away from grimmer details and the difficulties that the winter season brought are also clear. 

Currently showing: Barbara Hepworth in the Rijksmuseum 

Barbara Hepworth was an English artist and sculptor whose work was grounded in Modernism. She was part of the collective of artists who settled in the coastal town of St Ives and is credited in particular for being one of the few women to achieve international prominence in the art world. She was an innovator who broke with tradition in the ambitious pursuit to find new forms of expression within sculpting, and this summer 9 of her best works are on display in the Rijksmuseum gardens. It is her first solo exhibition in Amsterdam. 

The Rijksmuseum is a full day out in Amsterdam; It is home to the narrative of the Netherlands and tells stories dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. It is one of the most beautiful art galleries in Europe, possibly the world, and links the past with the present in a comprehensive view of the art world. Plusm if the artwork hasn’t quenched your artistic thirst, then fear not. Just beyond The Night Watch you’ll find the largest art history library in the Netherlands.

Winter Landscape with Skaters, Hendrick Avercamp, 1608

Hendrick Avercamp was another prolific painter of the Dutch Golden Age, a non-verbal - and possibly deaf - artist who came to be known as the Mute of Kampen. His works specialised on winter scenes and he was well known for his skill at capturing the Arctic cold; even at the height of summer it is difficult not to shiver whilst beholding his Winter Landscape with1608 Skaters. Avercamp’s quiet life in Kampen in which he spent the majority of his time observing others translated to paintings full of atmospheric quality and each figure is delicately constructed whilst not losing the cohesion of a group. Although pleasure and cheer are depicted in his works, Avercamp does not shy away from grimmer details and the difficulties that the winter season brought are also clear. 

Currently showing: Barbara Hepworth in the Rijksmuseum 

Barbara Hepworth was an English artist and sculptor whose work was grounded in Modernism. She was part of the collective of artists who settled in the coastal town of St Ives and is credited in particular for being one of the few women to achieve international prominence in the art world. She was an innovator who broke with tradition in the ambitious pursuit to find new forms of expression within sculpting, and this summer 9 of her best works are on display in the Rijksmuseum gardens. It is her first solo exhibition in Amsterdam. 

The Rijksmuseum is a full day out in Amsterdam; It is home to the narrative of the Netherlands and tells stories dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. It is one of the most beautiful art galleries in Europe, possibly the world, and links the past with the present in a comprehensive view of the art world. Plusm if the artwork hasn’t quenched your artistic thirst, then fear not. Just beyond The Night Watch you’ll find the largest art history library in the Netherlands.
