In one room of the Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam the Dutch National Portrait Gallery presented about seventy painted, drawn and photographed portraits of Amsterdammers, curated by Koos Breukel: a face tot face impression of the versatile character of the city, its inhabitants and its artists.

‘Being an Amsterdammer is about attitude, about the feeling of being able to cope with anything in the world while never losing one’s sense of humour. What binds Amsterdammers is their swagger and free spirit. ‘ (curator Koos Breukel on Amsterdammers)
