The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is the national museum of the Netherlands. The museum has a collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings from all important Dutch artists, as well as international masters like Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Mondriaan and Picasso. Within the gallery three periods of Dutch art can be seen: the Middle Ages, Dutch Golden Age with its strong religious symbolism and Romanticism. The Rijksmuseum was founded in The Hague in 1800, but because of increasing competition for space, the collection had to be moved to Amsterdam in 1808. The collection of paintings is the most impressive part of the museum, including many famous masters. Today, the museum has a collection of around 3,000 paintings and 200,000 drawings and prints. The collection is systematically organized according to the type of work, artist and origin. The main periods and movements in art history are represented in the collection: Dutch painting up until 1700, then from 1750 to 1850 and finally Post-impressionism and Modern Art. Some artists have their own room or gallery; for instance Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Mondriaan and Picasso. In the early stages of the Museum's history, space was limited and it made more sense to group works according to regions or themes.
