Masterpieces in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age Amsterdam
Thirty enormous paintings featuring group portraits of the 17th-century elite are on display in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age Amsterdam. These include works by such masters as Nicolaes Pickenoy, Govert Flinck and Rembrandt van Rijn. During the 17th century—the so-called Dutch Golden Age—Amsterdam was the economic, military, artistic and scientific centre of the world. The highly lucrative trade business and the monopoly on spices in Asia that the Dutch East India Company had established gave an enormous (and seemingly inexhaustible) boost to the Dutch economy. This new-found abundance in wealth led to an increase in spending in all areas of the economy, including the arts. It was during this period that the pieces on display in the Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age Amsterdam were commissioned by the ruling upper class. The attention to detail and masterful techniques employed by the painters have never been outdone since. The current exposition at the Hermitage Museum is also the first (and perhaps last) time these works are exhibited together. The Portrait Gallery of the Golden Age Amsterdam is, therefore, a must-see during your holidays in the Netherlands!
