Amsterdam: An Art Lovers' Guide

Historian Janina Ramirez and art critic Alastair Sooke embark on cultural city breaks, offering insights into the most famous locations and uncovering hidden gems and untold stories to reveal how religion, revolution and trailblazing individuals can shape the art - and soul - of a metropolis. They begin by examining the art and design of the Dutch capital Amsterdam, along the way discovering how its culture reflects the liberal attitudes, appetite for global trade and love of home comforts that helped shape the character of this city.
