Mysterious 19-century art in Amsterdam

Known for showing mystical or fairy tale-like figures, Matthijs Maris' works are unmistakable, and his eccentric lifestyle and idiosyncratic paintings provided inspiration to young artists, including Vincent van Gogh. Many of the works exhibited here are on loan from the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, given special permission to leave Scotland while that museum undergoes drastic refurbishment.
