Caesar van Everdingen, the Rembrandt of Alkmaar, is the city’s greatest seventeenth-century painter. Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar is home to many of his works. All are displayed at the galleries hang proudly on the walls of its galleries – save for one. Van Everdingen’s earliest civic guard painting, made in 1641, is currently undergoing a thorough restoration. Part of the process is being carried out in the museum, in public view, every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
