AMSTERDAM.- In response to the latest guidelines announced by the government of the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum, the national museum of the Netherlands, will re-open to the public on 1 June.

The much-celebrated temporary exhibition Caravaggio-Bernini. Baroque in Rome, originally scheduled to close on 7 June, will now be extended to 13 September 2020. It had received 85,000 visitors in the four weeks since the exhibition opened on 14 February.

Taco Dibbits, Director of the Rijksmuseum: It is crucially important that we can open the museum to the visiting public again. In these of all times, art is a lifeline. We will do everything possible to make the museum a safe and pleasant environment for everybody. We are particularly indebted to the 44 lenders – from Vienna, Italy and elsewhere – who are making it possible for the public to continue to visit Caravaggio-Bernini. They are doing so in the conviction that it is precisely in times such as these that art and culture contribute to international solidarity.

The safety of visitors and staff remains Rijksmuseum’s top priority. To this end, a number of measures has been put in place to ensure museum visits are as safe and enjoyable as possible. For the time being, visitors will only be admitted into the museum with tickets pre-booked online. Rijksmuseum will operate a timed entry ticket system, whereby visitors can select the date and preferred timed entry slot when booking tickets on the Rijksmuseum site.

Caravaggio-Bernini. Baroque in Rome
In the first decades of the 17th century a new generation of ambitious artists led by the brilliant painter Caravaggio and sculptor Bernini shook the eternal city of Rome from its slumber. They introduced a new language to art that dispensed with elegance and incited the emotions. This was Baroque, a spectacular artistic style charged with drama, dynamism and bravura, which sparked intimate collaborations between painting, sculpture and architecture. This was a revolution in Western art, one that started in Rome and resonated throughout Europe.

Caravaggio-Bernini. Baroque in Rome is an exhibition of more than 70 masterpieces by Caravaggio, Bernini and their contemporaries. The paintings and sculptures are on loan to the Rijksmuseum from museums and private collections around the world.
