Are you ready for IMEX America? It’s only a few days before I will take my plane to Las Vegas and I feel how the excitement starts grabbing me. I hope to see all my friends again and meet many new and interesting people. This time, the Holland crew and I have prepared some nice orange specials for you. Next to the Holland Happy Hour, we will invite you to participate in our photo contest. First prize: a trip to Holland for you and a friend. Check out what you can expect.
Meet the Dutch masters
Many Dutch artists have changed the international art with their impressive works. Rembrandt is considered one of the greatest painters in Europe and his portraits are famous in the whole world. His contemporary Johannes Vermeer inspired later artists with his domestic interior scenes, which makes him one of the greatest artists of the Dutch Golden Age. Vincent van Gogh, who became one of the greatest and most recognizable painters in history, followed Rembrandt and Vermeer. I cannot mention a person who is not fascinated by his sunflower paintings.
Dutch art in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is home to many of the world’s most famous art museums. The Van Gogh Museum, the Rembrandt House and the Stedelijk Museum attract thousands of visitors. The largest museum in Amsterdam is the Rijksmuseum, which has been reopened in brand-new style after 10 years of restoration. Next to works by Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals it contains Rembrandts masterpiece ‘The Night Watch’, which has pride of place in a beautifully lit hall. A trip to Amsterdam is definitely not complete without a visit to the Rijksmuseum.
