5-star review for Rijksmuseum Amsterdam by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite (26 February 2018)


The Rijksmuseum (National Museum of the Netherlands) is aclassic architectural wonder that houses over a million art works. Themuseum (gallery), located in the cultural center of Amsterdam, boasts amagnificent collection of works from around the world and throughout the centuries, including the works of the seventeenth-century DutchMasters; Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals and many others. A cathedral-likebuilding, the ambiance of the space exudes historical and artisticreverence.

The focal point of the gallery space is the Front Hall, the Gallery ofHonor, and the Rembrandt Hall where the Netherlands, from theseventeenth-century, the Dutch Golden Age, reflects a proud era of Dutch history, not just in its art, but also in the fine crafts such assilverware, furniture, earthenware and fine tapestries. The othergalleries in the Rijksmuseum trace historical eras through the centuries from medieval times to current contemporary works. There is also agallery devoted to Asian works. The special collections gallery is asurprise. It features many unique and unusual artifacts, like modelships, porcelain tea sets, engraved glass and silver, working magiclanterns and a silent disco. "You will feel like a child in a toystore."

Art historian Marko Kassenaar has produced a marvellous guide to one ofthe world's great art treasures. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam: Highlights ofthe Collection (Amsterdam Museum Guides Book 1) is both useful andinformative, complete with illustrations and enticing comments aboutspecific aspects of both the museum and the collection. The book isdivided into sections, each section featuring one particular collectionwithin the museum. A wonderful guide.
