The artistic work produced in the Netherlands 100 years ago is characterized by enormous variety. Impressionism was still a strong influence, but young artists were exploring numerous other avenues as well. Some turned to new sources of inspiration such as Japanese art and symbolism, while others were pushing stylization to its limits. International schools were followed closely by Dutch artists, many of whom stayed for months at a time in Paris, the South of France, or London to study new trends.

These developments, which roughly spanned the period from 1885 to 1915, began with Van Gogh, and ended with Mondrian. Each of them pioneered modern art in his own utterly distinctive fashion. In the intervening period the most striking Modernist tendencies are found in the work of artists such as Jan Toorop, George Breitner, Isaac Israels, Willem Witsen, Kees van Dongen, and Jan Sluijters.

This book explores the significance of this period for art on paper. To the Rijksmuseum's own drawings, designs for decorative art, prints, posters, and photographs, items have been added from other public and private collections in the Netherlands. The selection gives an excellent impression of the range of work produced on paper in the period around 1900.
