17 December - 31 December
Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age
Thirty colossal, 17th century group portraits are brought together in the Hermitage Amsterdam. These ‘brothers and sisters’ of the famous Night Watch by Rembrandt are unique all over the world and are rarely exposed due to their size. They show us regents, civic guards and merchants of all ranks, social classes and religions. Renowned artists as Govert Flinck and Nicolaes Pickenoy painted these portraits. They tell the story of the collective citizenship and tolerance of the 17th century, which became so typical of the Netherlands. Rembrandt’s ‘The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Deijman’ is one of the most impressive works you will find in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age. Get your tickets now.
