This ticket provides access to all three exhibitions under our roof: Dutch Masters from the Hermitage, Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age and New Masters.
Dutch Masters from the Hermitage
For the first time in its existence, the Hermitage Amsterdam is mounting a show of Dutch masters from the renowned St Petersburg collection. The Nieuwe Keizersgracht wing will showcase one of the greatest treasures of the State Hermitage: the world’s leading collection of Dutch Golden Age painting outside the Netherlands. No fewer than 63 works by 50 different artists are being brought to Amsterdam for a unique exhibition that will celebrate the paintings first (brief) ‘home-coming’.
Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age
Thirty colossal, 17th century group portraits from the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum collections have been brought together for the first time ever in the Hermitage Amsterdam. These are the ‘brothers and sisters’ of the famous ‘Night Watch’ by Rembrandt van Rijn. They are unique all over the world and are rarely exposed due to their impressive size. Look at regents, civic guards and merchants of all ranks, social classes and religions, standing together as brothers. Rembrandt’s ‘The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Deijman’ and portraits of civic guards including Govert Flinck and Nicolaes Pickenoy are but a few examples of the works of art that are on display in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age. Together they illustrate the story of collective citizenship that is so typical of the Netherlands. It’s as if they are holding up a mirror to contemporary Dutch society. Because the relationships between the people of the time formed the basis of the standards and conventions of today.
New Masters at the Outsider Art Museum
In the exhibition New Masters, the Outsider Art Museum introduces more than 70 works by 30 talented contemporary Outsider artists. Moreover, in a series of intimate, poignant portraits, photographer Sander Toelstra gives a face to their fascinating world. Troelstra has won the Canon Silver Camera Award on many occasions, and also took the honours at the prestigious Dutch National Portrait Award in 2015. Propelled by the unusual, Troelstra concentrated on creating portraits of people on the fringes; those who sometimes have trouble connecting with society. New Masters brings the visitor face-to-face with these unconventional artists, exploring their hypersensitivity and extraordinary creativity. Who are these New Masters? What motivates them? What drives their near manic working method?
