Hermitage Amsterdam: Highlights from the Hermitage Museum St Petersburg (Amsterdam Museum Guides Book 4)

Description and Overview

Off the beaten track in Amsterdam: Hermitage Amsterdam

The Hermitage Amsterdam is the only European satellite of the famous Hermitage in St Petersburg in Russia. A must see when you visit Amsterdam. The museum is housed in a fascinating old building, Amstelhof, and stages excellent exhibitions.

Until the end of 2016 you will be able to enjoy a spectacular Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age: over thirty very large 17th-century group portraits that can be regarded as the artistic siblings of Rembrandt’s Nightwatch. Due to their enormous proportions the portraits are rarely on view, let alone shown together in a single exhibition. The works come from the collections of the Amsterdam Museum as well as the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
