Highlights Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age
- Over 30 enormous Golden Age group portraits by Rembrandt, Pickenoy and other Dutch Masters
- So called 'brothers and sisters of the Nightwatch'
- From the collection of both Rijksmuseum and Amsterdam Museum
- For the first time on display all together
- Spectacular view due to the size of the paintings
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 where they have been on display since the 29th of November 2014. These ‘brothers and sisters’ of the Night Watch 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, 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 view in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age.
