Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar acts as the collective memory for the city of Alkmaar and as the starting point for anyone who would like to experience and discover the history and art of the city.
Rugged landscapes with waterfalls, log cabins and spruce trees
Until January 16, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar presents the world’s first overview of the work of Allart van Everdingen (1621-1675), the first artist to paint the rugged landscape of Scandinavia. This versatile artist, who traveled across Norway in his youth and lived in Haarlem and Amsterdam for the rest of his life, was born in Alkmaar just over 400 years ago. He was the younger brother of painter Caesar van Everdingen (1616/1617-1678), who featured in a successful exhibition hosted by Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar in 2016-2017. From September 18, 2021 through January 16, 2022, Alkmaar houses the best of van Allart van Everdingen’s rich and varied body of works, courtesy of special loans from museums such as the Mauritshuis, the Rijksmuseum, the Alte Pinakotek in Munich, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts as well as national and international private collections.
In van Allart van Everdingen’s footsteps
In autumn 2019, photographer Pascal Vossen and curator Christi Klinkert (Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar) traveled the southern coasts of Sweden and Norway. Vossen took photographs of motifs and locations painted by van Everdingen, to prepare for the exhibition. He also documented how contemporary visitors and inhabitants engaged with the incredible Scandinavian landscape.
