Portraits give an insight into the times and local colour of a place or an institution. This evocative title reproduces a selection of portraits of the professors of the University of Amsterdam commissioned over the centuries since 1632. The collection of these portraits, numbering some 1500, represents the history of the university, as well as the flamboyance and unconventionality of some of the Amsterdam scholars.
