When the canals and lakes freeze over, every Dutchman takes to the ice, exactly like they did four hundred years ago. No one has depicted this Dutch passion more beautifully than Avercamp. His quintessentially Dutch Winter Landscape with Skaters is a favourite of both Dutch and foreign visitors. The Rijksmuseum Series is an easy way to learn about the most important artworks and historical topics in the Rijksmuseum. Each lavishly illustrated volume introduces a work of art and places it in its (art) historical context. Ideal for anyone who wants to find out more on his favourite artwork in the museum, as a souvenir or gift.
