Zeer de moeite waard om het rijksmuseim te bezoeken. Wij waren zeer onder de indruk van de presentaties en de opbouw van de collecties. De uitleg bij het tentoon gestelde kunst is duidelijk in tweetalen uitgelegd

Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam boasts an extraordinary collection of artwork by some of the finest artists to have ever lived. Here are some noteworthy paintings that should not be missed during a tour.

The Night Watch by Rembrandt

The Night Watch is a famous, large oil painting on canvas by Rembrandt. It is also known as The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch. Completed in 1642, it hung in what was then "Tromp's citadel", which has since become the museum known today as the Rijksmuseum.

The Threatened Swan by Jan Asselijn

The Threatened Swan is a painting by Jan Asselin that was completed in 1650. It depicts swans on the banks of the Amstel river, in front of Asselijns' hometown Amsterdam. The artist was very interested in painting the beauty and tranquility of nature.

Portrait of a Young Couple by Frans Hals

Portrait of a Young Couple is an oil painting on canvas by the artist Frans Hals, painted in 1633. The painting is considered to be one of his finest pieces. It depicts a young couple dressed in typical clothing for nobility from that time, the clothing identifies them as rich nobility.

Girl in a Blue Dress  by Johannes Cornelisz Verspronck

This oil painting uses a painted design format called Vernis Martin, which is silver-like in appearance. The painting depicts a young girl looking away from the viewer while she plays with her dress. The Girl in a Blue Dress paintings are extremely rare today; in 2015 there were only three known surviving examples left in public collections.

Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer
