14 December - 5 March. The Rijksmuseum celebrates the religious imagery associated with Christmas, with a selection of ten magnificent paintings and several sculptures.
The paintings, many of them recently-restored and not seen by the public for many years, are destined to join the New Rijksmuseum permanent collection once the exhibition ends.
Some of the show's highlights include the Madonna and Child, attributed to 16th-century painter Adriaen Isenbrant (1490-1551), and the mediaeval painting The Holy Kinship (c. 1490) by Geertgen tot Sint Jans.
The sculptures on display come to the Rijksmuseum on loan from a large private collection of mediaeval art in the Netherlands.
