This is an incomplete list of painters in the collection of the Rijksmuseum, with the number of artworks represented, and sorted by century of birth. For more information about the collection which comprises more than 3,000 paintings, see Rijksmuseum. More than 300 works are by unknown or anonymous painters, and though over 1,000 individual artists are in the collection, many of these are represented by only one work. The highlights of the collection are the oldest works such as former altarpieces from Amsterdam churches, but also large works for other former Amsterdam institutions by Pieter Aertsen, Rembrandt, Nicolaes Maes, and Bartholomeus van der Helst. Most of the artists in the collection were born in the 16th and 17th centuries. Only 24 women are represented with works in the collection, most notably Judith Leyster, Gesina ter Borch, Catharina van Hemessen and Rachel Ruysch.
