Fun at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam 

Published June 7, 2017 by theycallmemrstibbs

Sorry,  I’m a little late with this. But we went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam as I had been wanting to go for a while. This was due to a Rembrandt printing I had heard so much about,on QI. A great way to hear things. 

We love huge Hollywood style sign. 

The top picture is a copy of the painting The Nightwatch. This was the one I wanted to see. 

The top right picture is a self portrait of Rembrandt. 

As you’ve probably guessed, the vast majority of the paintings there are by Rembrandt, Frans Hals, and Johannesburg Vermeer.

The top painting on the left is of Mary, Princess Royal and Princess of Orange and her husband William of Orange. They were young but this was an arranged marriage. 

This is the library at the museum, I found this magnificent. I’d love to explore a library like this. 

Finally the original painting, The Nightwatch and me. It is a slightly altered painting as it wouldn’t fit in through the door. So they cut it and placed it in the frame. If you compare this painting (ie the original) to the copy shown earlier, you can see the parts of the original that were cut off. The painting was so crowded with a security guard. 

With having seen so many Rembrandt’s and Van Gogh’s we’ve gotten very good at identifying them.
