After breakfast visit Rijksmuseum, Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history, one of the most famous galleries in the world. The museum house was built in 1885 in a combined style of gothic and baroque. The rich collection of the museum contains first of all the masterpieces of the 17th c. Dutch Golden age. Jan Bruegel, Jacob van Ruisdael, Frans Hals, Anthony Van Duyk, Pieter de Hooch, Jan Steen and, of course, great Rembrandt and Vermeer.
We will pay particular attention to the analysis of the great masterpieces of Rembrandt such as “Night Watch“, “Jewish bride“, “Conspiracy of the Batavians”, his self-portraits and also to the “Milkmaid” and “Woman reading a letter” of Johannes Vermeer. Rijksmuseum also has a great collection of etchings and prints of Rembrandt and other artists. After the coffee break, visit the 19-20 c. art section of the museum and admire the paintings of Van Gogh, Breitner, Vaisenbroch, Mauve, and others. We’ll finish our visit to Rijksmuseum at the exhibition of Meissen porcelain and Art Nouveau glass pieces. Back to the hotel for rest before the evening performance at the Dutch opera.
