Symposium Rembrandt Conservation Histories - Call for Papers

Rijksmuseum

On 8 and 9 November 2018, the Rijksmuseum will host an international symposium on the history of conservation of paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn. The aim is to heighten awareness of how the appearance and condition of paintings by Rembrandt can (partly) be explained by their treatment history.

The symposium is organised on the occasion of the research and treatment of the portraits of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit by Rembrandt van Rijn, jointly owned by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Musee du Louvre in Paris.
