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.

EENMAAL – People dining alone

This month sees the opening of Eenmaal, a temporary restaurant in Amsterdam that claims to be the world’s first restaurant catering purely to solo diners. No couples, no families, no groups of chattering friends allowed. Sleek, Ikea-style black desks/tables are dotted around the studiously sparse, industrial-chic space. There’s a fixed €35 (£29) four-course menu including cocktails and wine – at Eenmaal, it definitely pays to be on your tod. Marina Van Goor, its creator, has plans to bring the pop-up to London, Paris and other European cities. “I wanted to break the perception that eating out alone isn’t very attractive,” she explains. “Solitary dining can actually be an inspiring experience, because you get a chance to disconnect for a while in our hyper-connected world.” Read more.
