Asia > Amsterdam

With 170 objects from China, Japan, India and Batavia, the exhibition Asia in Amsterdam (17 October 2015 to 17 January 2016) tells 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’. rijksmuseum.nl/asia-in-amsterdam
