The exhibition 'Asia in Amsterdam; Luxury in the Golden Age' also presents many 17th century paintings: still-lifes and portraits of citizens who had themselves painted among their newly acquired items of Asian luxury. The exhibition is being organised in cooperation with the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, USA. The loan items originate in such far-flung places as Moscow, St Petersburg, Versailles, London, Oxford, Madrid and Stockholm.
The exhibition 'Asia in Amsterdam. Luxury in the Golden Age' will be on view in the Rijksmuseum from 17 October 2015 untill 17 January 2016.
