Rijksmuseum Second Floor Gallery 06: Dollhouses
Amsterdam, Netherlands - September 2016
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 six of eleven of the second floor galleries and displays intricate doll houses made by Dutch artists. Just like the French opera house models at the  Musée d'Orsay in Paris, much effort had been put into the detailing of these miniature models. Click below to navigate to other sections:

Below are the artwork, for an enlarged view click on the respective photo; most of these works did not have any attribution to the artists who made them. Enjoy!
Some of the models were part rooms. This one is an entrance foyer, displayed in a nice cabinet.


A close up view shows a grand staircase with miniature statues and wall murals.


A cut-through section shows rooms at different levels of a house, with different activities/use at different floors. The furniture had been done intricately and timber wall panels and murals give a fine finishing touch.


A close up view of the "Dish" room, finished with wall tiles and with a cabinet displaying miniature dish models.
