A pavilion for Asian art in the new Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

After a prolonged period of extensive renovation, the Rijksmuseum reopened its doors to the public in April with a redesigned interior and brand new displays. The main building now presents a chronological overview of Dutch art and history, with attention being paid at various intervals to objects that were produced for international trade, such as export lacquer ware or Delftware and porcelain from China and Japan. A separate, newly built pavilion houses the main collection of Asian art.
