Breitner: Girl in Kimono

20 Feb-22 May. For the first time the entire 14 versions of Girl in a Kimono by the Dutch painter and photographer George Hendrik Breitner (1857-1923) will be displayed alongside each other.

An important figure in Amsterdam Impressionism, Breitner painted and sketched the model Geesje Kwak countless times between 1893 and 1896.

The Rijksmuseum shows Breitner's full series of kimono paintings including the recently discovered Girl in a Red Kimono from a private collection. The exhibition also features the artist's preparatory drawings and photographs.
