New in 2019

Discover an intimate look at the life and times of the Netherland's most famous painter at "The Private World of Rembrandt" exhibition at the Amsterdam City Archives.

Born in Leiden in 1606 and settling in Amsterdam in 1631 until his death in 1669, Rembrandt van Rijn is one of the greatest painters in history and certainly one of the Netherland's best-known artists. Commemorating the 350th anniversary of his death, Amsterdam City Archives is hosting an eye-opening exhibition, "The Private World of Rembrandt" featuring personal documents, drawings, etchings, letters and more.

From his work and his clients to his wives, lovers, children and financial difficulties, the exhibition includes both familiar and never-before-seen artefacts from the Amsterdam City Archives and on load from institutions including the Rijksmuseum and Rembrandt House Museum. Discover the life and work of Rembrandt in an entirely new way with the aid of Augmented Reality (AR) - enriched with sounds and images, Rembrandt's drawings and personal history will come to life, giving an intimate look at the painter's life.
