For the Rijksmuseum, the 20th century is new territory, but it’s essential to complete the story of the Netherlands’ art and cultural history. In the 20th century, the Netherlands becomes the face of modernity, a reputation that it retains in the field of art and design to this day. Think of Mondrian’s abstract canvases, Rietveld’s furniture, Karel Appel’s wild paintings and the design of Schiphol, which are all unique.
