Rembrandt’s Nightwatch at the Rijksmuseum

Huge painting with new (at the time) light effects. Painting was actually trimmed at one point to fit in a new location. Did you know Rembrandt was his first name?


The museum, with a temporary Henry Moore sculpture, reopened earlier this year after extensive renovations


Nightwatch is hanging in back, to give you a sense of scale…

  1. Lucky you. Heard that Night Watch wasn’t so dark after it was cleaned. Seriously, I’d love to see it again – and the Moore too!
