Reviews

"Al met al is Rijksmuseum. Het gebouw, de collectie en de groene buitenzaal een fijn handzaam boek met prachtige illustraties dat een goed inzicht geeft in het oorspronkelijke gebouw van het Rijksmuseum als Gesamtkunstwerk van Pierre Cuypers en hoe dit nu in ere is hersteld met de renovatie." -- Hereditas Nexus

"For those who have never had the opportunity to visit the museum, or for anyone who wants to enrich their visiting experience, Rijksmuseum: The Building, the Collection and the Outdoor Gallery is a must. . . . Experts explain different aspects of the renovation, providing an in-depth look at the building and its history." -- DUTCH magazine

The Building, the Collection and the Outdoor Gallery

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is more beautiful than it has ever been. The original interior has been recovered under the direction of Cruz y Ortis, so that architecture and décor once again form a coherent whole. This beautiful richly illustrated book - which includes maps and many photographs of the interior, illustrations, and views of the building - takes you on an amazing journey through the architectural highlights of the Rijksmuseum, the highlights of the collection - including Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Van Gogh - and out into the beautiful garden.

The book is also published in Dutch: Rijksmuseum: Het gebouw, de collectie en de groene buitenzaal, ISBN 978 90 8964 899 0
