Asia exhibition

October 17 2015 to January 17 2016 in the Rijksmuseum
Philips Wing
With 170 treasures from China, Japan, India and Batavia, the Rijksmuseum is organising an exhibition starting on 17 October to tell the story of the excitement created by the Asian treasures that were shipped to Holland in the Golden Age. Lacquer work, ivory, silver, silk, ebony, jewellery and enormous quantities of porcelain poured into Amsterdam, the then bustling ‘capital of the world’, to enrich the interiors of the increasingly prosperous Dutch bourgeoisie.
