The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, has an annexe at Schipol Airport, Amsterdam, Holland, making it easy for visitors to see the current exhibitions on view.
Seven paintings by Melchior d’Hondecoeter (1636-1695), the most renowned Dutch painter of 17th century ‘bird pieces’, will be exhibited from 27 May to 26 October 2009 in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schiphol. Never before had an artist succeeded in portraying birds in such a lively way. Hondecoeter seemed to capture the birds in a snapshot, as if they could seemingly fly away at any second.
The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schiphol is located on Holland Boulevard, in the area behind the passport control between the E and F Pier. The museum is open every day from 7:00 until 20:00.
