Children of the Rijksmuseum
The children of the Rijksmuseum are the focus of this year’s Children’s Welfare Stamps. Inspiration for the stamps was found in the fantastic work of artists from the Golden Age until the end of the last century. Rembrandt, Jan Steen, Breitner and Israëls have all immortalised children in a beautiful way in their paintings. There remains the question of whether all of them will have the honour of adorning the sheet of Children’s Welfare Stamps. During the presentation of the stamps in September, it will be decided which children of the Rijksmuseum would have the privilege of contributing to the future of today’s children.
