Dutch Winters

Exhibition: 24 November 2010 - 21 March 2011

From the museum website, 4 January 2010

With its Dutch Winters exhibition, the Rijksmuseum Schiphol will display a selection of 17th- and 19th-century works from its own collection that depict the popular theme of winter in a multifaceted and sublime manner. Along with the 17th-century winter scenes by artists such as Hendrick Avercamp and Jacob van Ruisdael, the Dutch Winters exhibition will also feature works from the 19th-century Romantic era by Barend Koekkoek. After focusing on the realism of August Allebé and The Hague School of Anton Mauve, the exhibition rounds off with the impressionistic work of George Hendrik Breitner and Isaac Israëls dating from around the turn of the century.
