RTXP was opened in January 2023 by a father and son team and is located in De Pijp district of Amsterdam close to the Heineken Brewery.
It is housed in a monumental building on the corner of Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat and Ferdinand Bolstraat. This was built in 1882 in neoclassical style and was a former school.
RTXP has oil painted full-size replicas of many renowned artists from the Renaissance period to more modern times. The art is presented in a quirky and colourful way in light filled rooms.
There is a dedicated room to Vincent Van Gogh with replica works including the Sunflowers, Irises, Almond Blossoms, Terrace of a Cafe at Night, Mulberry Tree and the Starry Night.
Other Dutch artist replicas include a Rembrandt room (with a copy of the Nightwatch) and works derived from Rietveld, Vermeer and Mondrian.
You will find Renaissance-era replica works from the likes of Hieronymus Bosch (Garden of Earthly Delights), Sandro Botticelli (The Birth of Venus) and Leonardo Da Vinci (Mona Lisa).
Each painting has a scannable QR code which will give you more background info and audio on your own device.
For social media lovers there is an immersive room of Monet’s Garden in Giverny with its Japanese bridge.
More modern replicas include those from Degas, Gaugin, Hopper, Klimt, Munch and Renoir.
RTXP states that all the art on display is available for sale.
There is a small bar in the Rembrandt room which sells drinks and sweet bites. Note, the location is currently not wheelchair accessible.
Although some critics may question the concept and quality of some of the copies, RTXP is a fun journey around the history of art. On our visit it was very quiet so if you want to escape the crowds then it could be worth heading over for a look around.
