Rijksmuseum Amsterdam - Profile

General Information

At the Rijksmuseum, art and history take on new meaning for a broad-based, contemporary national and international audience. As a national institute, the Rijksmuseum offers a representative overview of Dutch art and history from the Middle Ages onwards, and of major aspects of European and Asian art. The Rijksmuseum keeps, manages, conserves, restores, researches, prepares, collects, publishes, and presents artistic and historical objects, both on its own premises and elsewhere.

Additional Information

From the late 16th century, the Netherlands was a republic. In other words, there was no royal house that amassed an international collection, such as in Spain (Philips II) or Russia (Catharine the Great). Art buyers were citizens. They made purchases mostly in their home country, and not so much abroad. The Rijksmuseum collection is based on these private collections.
