XXL paper. Large, very large, even larger!

Exhibition July 1 − September 4, 2022
Rijksmuseum invites you to visit a spectacular exhibition "XXL Paper. Big, very big, even bigger!".

The exhibition features the largest engravings, drawings, and photographs in the museum's collection, created from 1500 to the present day. One of the oldest is the genealogical tree of Emperor Charles V (c. 1535), by Robert Peril. It is a wood engraving almost 7 meters long!

How do you display a 23-foot painted landscape? a 16-meter-long print of a funeral procession? Or a life-size sketch of a church window 12 meters high? These are some of the largest works on paper in the exhibition. Because of their size and fragility, they are rarely on display. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to see such large-scale exhibits.
