Cool Waters

Group: Exhibitions
Type: Exhibition

The Netherlands is in the lowest delta in the world. The large rivers, the location by the sea and 18,000 km of dikes that have to turn the water determine the Dutch landscape. Water is both friend and foe. The Dutch earn their living with it, but also have to protect themselves against it. Painters have captured this unique landscape in many ways over the centuries. The exhibition Cool Waters is an eye-catching selection of forty landscapes from the Rijksmuseum collection with water as friend and enemy in the leading role.
