In the Civic Guards gallery of the Amsterdam Museum is currently The Arrival of Napoleon at Amsterdam exhibited. One of the biggest paintings of the Netherlands which, after half a life of rolled up neglect, is in need of a thorough restoration. Using crowdfunding will this historical painting be restored to its former glory. The micro Maecenas can through the website www.amsterdammuseum.nl choose which part, of the to Napoleon originally as a gift offered painting, will be restored to his credit. Besides this top piece in front of which you can easily dream away for one hour without having yourself applied even a bit of propofol, there is in this freely accessible covered passage of the former orphanage also work by Marlene Dumas, Micha Klein, Henk Schiffmacher, Bartholomeus van der Helst, Arno Coenen, Faith 71, Erwin Olaf, Ferdinand Bol, Hugo Kaagman and Paul Huf among others.
