Furthermore, the visitors under more works by Tintoretto, Lotto and Moroni. These are also unique opportunities for the Netherlands, says director Arnoud Odding.

In a couple of Dutch museums is the art of the Italian renaissance, but according to Odding, “not much, and fragmentary”. The Dutch collection policy is “very focused on our own Golden Century”.

In the heart of the renaissance is called the exposition. “I think it’s great to see how the Italians and the Dutch in the art when each other were in contact and interacted.”
