1917. Romanovs & Revolution

Dutch Masters from the Hermitage. Treasures of the Tsars

7 October 2017 – 27 May 2018

It’s been a long time coming but 7 October is the great day. For the first time in its existence, the Hermitage Amsterdam is mounting a show of Dutch masters from the renowned St Petersburg collection. The Nieuwe Keizersgracht wing will showcase one of the greatest treasures of the State Hermitage: the world’s leading collection of Dutch Golden Age painting outside the Netherlands. No fewer than 63 works by 50 different artists are being brought to Amsterdam for a unique exhibition that will celebrate the paintings first (brief) ‘home-coming’ in 350 years.

Reclining Nude with Man Playing the Guitar on view at Hermitage Amsterdam from 24.11.2016 through 28.5.2017

In Marijn van Kreij’s multifaceted oeuvre, consisting of drawings, paintings, collages, videos and installations, the process of duplication plays a key role. In his work, Van Kreij finds a connection with historical work by artists from the past – the legacy of modernism in particular – as well as with music and visual culture in the broader sense. Reflecting on ideas around repetition and autonomy, his work often forms a response to existing works of art or involves collaborations with other artists, designers, writers or musicians.
