The largest show, which will probably never happen again, is being prepared by the Rijksmuseum.Have you ever hoped to see all the works of Rembrandt from the largest collection of his works in the world at once? This opportunity is real - to see the entire Rembrandt from the Rijksmuseum, where the world's largest collection of works by the Dutch master of the Golden Age is kept.

The main event is a blockbuster exhibition called The Whole Rembrandt, which runs from February 15 to June 10. For the first time, viewers can see 22 paintings, 60 drawings and over 300 of the best copies of Rembrandt's engravings. This is undoubtedly the first - but, apparently, the last - a show of such magnitude.
The main exhibit is the most iconic and beloved by many by Rembrandt's Night Watch, which from July, after the end of the exhibition, will be sent to a large-scale restoration.

This procedure is expected to take several years and cost millions of euros. The most thorough restoration in the entire history of the web will take place in glass-walled studios and visitors will be able to observe the progress of the work. In addition, the institution will conduct an online broadcast process.The Night Watch, or the Performance of the rifle company of Captain Frans Banning Kok and Lieutenant Willem van Ruytenbürg Rembrandt Harmens van Rein, 1642, 379.5 × 453.5 cmTwo other significant exhibits at the exhibition “All Rembrandt” were relatively new in the collection of works by Martina Solmahrmahurma.

After the end of the exhibition “The Whole Rembrandt”, the Rijksmuseum hopes to collect hundreds of works inspired by the master in the exhibition “Long Live Rembrandt”. From mid-January to March 31, the museum will collect applications from professional artists and amateurs who wish to exhibit their work within the walls of the institution.
Exhibits can be any - from paintings and photographs, to sculptures and installations - but all should be inspired by the works of the Dutchman. “Inspiration can take any form: the modern version of one of his works or the“ echo ”of Rembrandt’s creativity in using color, dramatic talent or mastery of playing with light and shadow,” the institution’s website says.
