9 March-24 May 2006. The Rijksmuseum presents an exhibition of paintings initially attributed to Rembrandt and acquired by the museum as such, but whose authenticity is now in question. This unusual exhibition takes the visitor through the elements of a painting that would define it as a Rembrandt using methods such as infra-red and X-ray scanning. In total 13 paintings are displayed, each accompanied by the opinions of various experts and a behind-the-scenes look at the Rijksmuseum Rembrandt study. An online display of three case studies runs in tandem with the exhibition, offering an explanation of why three paintings, Bust of a Laughing Young Man, Samson and Delilah and Portrait of a Man, are no longer considered genuine Rembrandts. The exhibition in the Philips Wing is part of the Rembrandt 400 celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of the artists birth. Admission 10, Stadspas cardholders 8, under-18s free. No student or senior discounts. 09.00-18.00, Fri 09.00-22.00.
