Rembrandt’s Night Watch Returns to the Rijksmuseum Automatic translate
AMSTERDAM. Rembrandt’s Nachtwacht returned to his room at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam under the supervision of engineers and police. The painting was packed in a wooden box and covered with a protective film that insulates the masterpiece from environmental factors. The packaging had temperature and humidity sensors.
Careful safety measures when transporting a picture are caused primarily by its size and considerable weight, and the process itself has turned into a spectacular show.
"Night Watch" is exhibited in the main building of the museum, which will open its doors to visitors on April 13th. Work on the reconstruction of the museum building ended in the summer of 2012, but in order for the premises to become suitable for the display of art objects, additional time was required.
Created in 642, "Night Watch" was one of the last works of the artist. The full name of the painting is "The performance of the rifle company of Captain Frans Bunning Kok and Lieutenant Willem van Reutenburg." It was written by order of the Rifle Society of Amsterdam and paid for from the city treasury. Therefore, the owner of the painting is the municipality of Amsterdam.
