Pure luxury on paper

8 May - 9 July. The Rijksmuseum presents an exhibition of 30 Japanese prints which exude luxury and are noted for their delicate and technically-precise depictions of Japanese women.

The works are part of two recently-donated collections by prominent collectors Jan Willem Goslings (1943-2011) and his wife Hilda, and H.C Bros (1926-2007) who bequeathed 180 prints to the museum.

In addition to donating 400 surimono prints, the Goslings established a fund to facilitate the collection's future expansion at the Rijksmuseum.

Printed on expensive paper with sumptuous silver and gold decorations, surimono prints were traditionally given as exclusive gifts to choice friends or close relatives to mark special occasions.
