Dutch Museum of Lithography:
The Magical East October 2022 until February 19th, 2023.

This expo gives you a new look at the Western representation of the East: from the fairy tale of Aladin to the Orient Express. 

Extraordinary works of art are on display, including work from the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. An interest in other cultures is an age-old phenomenon. In this respect, the magical East has always held great appeal for the West. The expo shows how artists from the West from the 19th century onwards found an artistic interpretation for the East. Its influences continue to simmer even into the 21st century. Willem Hofker and Willem Dooijewaard depict the beauty of the Dutch East Indies. Some artists show a realistic record of their travels, while others depict mainly oriental stereotypes.
