Expeditie Zijderoute Reis naar het Westen. Schatten uit de Hermitage


(Expedition Silk Road is only available in Dutch).

The legendary Silk Road already existed before our era. It was not just one route. but a great web of trade routes. Until the 15th century, the Silk Road was the largest trade network in the world, stretching from China to the Mediterranean. Travelers had to cross perilous mountain passes and through the most inhospitable deserts, but could pause their journey in fertile oases and thriving kingdoms. Trading was done here, and art flourished. It  was an unprecedented cultural exchange.

Hermitage Amsterdam

The Silk Route linked great civilizations such as India, Persia, China and the Roman Empire. This book presents the rare beauty of finds from lost cities, such as murals, buddhas, valuables made of silk, silver, glass, gold and terracotta, excavated by Russian expeditions in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It also sheds light on the discoverers who followed in the footsteps of Buddhist monks, kings and merchants. As a reader of Expedition Silk Road, you follow in their footsteps and traverse the trade routes themselves in a journey to the West, along a world of unexpected but unimaginably beautiful treasures.

Hermitage Amsterdam

The Hermitage Amsterdam takes it as their mission to draw upon art and history to inspire, enrich, and offer the opportunity for reflection. By way of their exhibitions and activities, the museum presents world heritage from the collections of various museums in innovative ways. The museum also houses collections from other museums, including the Amsterdam Museum, the Rijksmuseum (the exhibition Portrait Gallery of the 17th Century), and Museum van de Geest | Dolhuys (Museum of the Mind | Outsider Art).

The museum is housed in the Amstelhof, a historical building that used to be a home for the elderly from the late 15th all the way to the early 21th century. Only in 2007, the last residents were moved out of the building, which was in dire need of renovation. Two years later, on 20 June 2009 the Hermitage Amsterdam was opened to the public with the launch of the exhibition At the Russian court.
