Amsterdam by Rick Steves

Filled with history and happy-go-lucky, Amsterdam is a delight to explore. This uniquely entertaining city shows us Rembrandts and Van Goghs, more bikes than cars, flirting prostitutes, and pot-filled coffeeshops — all under tall, skinny facades leaning out below quaint church towers. (by Rick Steves).

Marten & Oopjen

Early this year the two Rembrandt portraits were bought together by the Netherlands and France, a unique event. From 2 July to 2 October 2016 Marten & Oopjen will have a place of honour alongside The Night Watch. The paintings will then be restored at the Rijksmuseum. Rembrandt painted the marriage portraits of the newly-weds Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit in Amsterdam in 1634, when he was twenty-eight. The portraits, more than two metres high, remained in private hands for almost four centuries.

Rijksmuseum tijdelijk ‘s avonds open

media_xl_2753184

Het Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam zal de komende maanden op vrijdagavond geopend zijn. Daarmee wil het museum mensen extra gelegenheid geven een bezoek te brengen aan de grote expositie Late Rembrandt.

Met ruim honderd schilderijen, tekeningen en prenten biedt het Rijksmuseum voor het eerst een uitgebreid overzicht van het werk van Rembrandt tussen circa 1652 en zijn dood in 1669. De tentoonstelling was de afgelopen maanden te zien in The National Gallery in Londen en trok daar zo’n kwart miljoen bezoekers.

De vrijdagavondopenstellingen vinden plaats tussen 27 februari en 8 mei (met uitzondering van 6 maart). Het museum is dan open tussen 19 en 22 uur. Normaal gaan de deuren dicht om 17 uur.
