The Rijksmuseum Bulletin, Volume 66, Issue 4 Published

A new issue of The Rijksmuseum Bulletin has appeared. The issue includes an article that focuses on the conservation history and recent treatment of the newly acquired pendant portraits of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit painted by Rembrandt. Another article informs on the controversy involved with the restoration of Rembrandt’s Syndics in 1929 and the way Rijksmuseum director Frederik Schmidt-Degener dealt with the challenges. The issue also contains an article on one of the more curious portraits made in the seventeenth century – the likeness of the Dutch classical scholar and notorious erotomaniac Hadriaan Beverland (1650-1716).
