From 7 October 2022 to 2 July 2023 the Dutch National Portrait Gallery and the National Maritime Museum presented Humans at Sea, a photography exhibition about the broad, divergent maritime world in which amazing, stimulating and moving portraits and stories show how a life at sea can change people.
Watch the Portrait Story ‘Humans at Sea’ in which photographer Colette Lukassen takes the final portrait in her photo series about the (step-by-step) integration of women in the Dutch Royal Navy.
Watch the Portrait Story ‘Mondriaan: picturing the Artist’ in which Wietse Coppes offers insight into both the portrait photos Mondrian used for his promotion, as well as photos that were absolutely not meant to be distributed further and shows what kind of person Mondrian was behind his public image.
In 2022 Dutch National Portrait Gallery has brought together the National Portrait Gallery, London (NPG) and the Hermitage Amsterdam to present the NPG exhibition Love Stories – Art, Passion & tragedy in Amsterdam.
