Housed in the historic Amstelhof along the banks of the Amstel River, this majestic museum is a sibling of its namesake in St Petersburg. Amsterdam has had a close connection to the Russian city since Tsar Peter took residence here and the main permanent collection focuses on artistic and cultural links between Russia and the Netherlands. Meanwhile, holdings from St Petersburg form the basis for such scintillating temporary exhibitions as the tableware of the Tsars and treasures from the Silk Road. There is also a section on the heritage of the museum’s historic home, and the Hermitage hosts fun and innovative children’s art workshops.

First Outsider Art Museum in the Netherlands

The museum world acknowledges a growing art movement

For the first time, the Netherlands will have its own Outsider Art Museum, with world-class works of art by national and international outsider artists. This museum will make its home in a new space in the Hermitage Amsterdam. The Dolhuys in Haarlem, health care organization Cordaan, and the Hermitage Amsterdam have joined in a unique partnership to put a substantial collection of outsider art on display for a large international audience.

The new museum, which will open on 17 March, focuses on contemporary outsider art from the growing Dolhuys collection: hundreds of works by scores of artists from Britain, France, Iran, Japan, and the Netherlands. Among these artists, one famous name is Shinichi Sawada (b. 1982). He exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2013, when outsider art took the spotlight there. That event launched this emerging movement into the international art scene. Sawada makes ceramic sculptures in an intensely perfectionistic process.
