Rijksmuseum Second Floor Gallery 02: Elyas To Jardin
Amsterdam, Netherlands - September 2016
"The Fall of Man" - oil on canvas painting by Cornelis van Haarlem (1592).
The Rijksmuseum was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808, where it was first located in the Royal Palace. The current main building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened its doors in 1885. It is one of the most visited museum in the Netherlands and with record numbers of 2.2 million and 2.47 million visitors. It is also the largest art museum in the country. I was most fortunate to visit it while on a tour of Europe.
These here are artwork from the second  floor galleries.
These are the photos taken of the artwork at the museum; for presentation purposes and due to photography angle, many of these have been cropped and edited to compensate for low lighting. It is better to visit the museum as nothing beats seeing the originals.

This blog comes in several pages, this is page two of eleven of the second floor galleries and include artwork from Isaac Elyas to Karel du Jardin; click below to navigate to other sections:
