The 17th century is called the 'Golden Age'. The new born Republic of the Netherlands was extremly wealthy and its citizens were very confident. The painting industry was booming. More than 5 million paintings have been made during the Golden Age, more than everywhere else in that period. Some of the painters are now world famous, think for example of Rembrandt, Frans Hals or Vermeer. We will walk in Rembrandts footsteps and see where he has lived and worked. You will learn more about his life in his own neighbourhood. We combine the walk with a guided visit to the famous Rijksmuseum where you can admire the real work as well! Join me on this Art tour and make the paintings come to life again!
