An impressive collection in a magnificent building

This Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age is an imposing exhibition in which 30 huge group portraits from the 17th century were collected for the first time in the Hermitage Amsterdam. The group portraits are from the collections of the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Also described as the ‘brothers and sisters’ of De Nachtwacht, this Portrait Gallery makes a unique exhibition and is famous not only in the Netherlands but all over the world. Partly, because the artworks are rarely exhibited due to their size.

The collection illustrates the story of the collective mindset of the people that is typical for the Netherlands. On the other hand, these relationships can also be seen as the basis of contemporary norms and manners. Are you curious why the Dutchman has such a high level of freedom and equality? The answer hangs – life-size – on the walls in the Hermitage Amsterdam.

If you want to see even more masterpieces, you should also visit the Rijksmuseum.
