Prague's National Museum Exhibits Dutch Masterpieces

Art aficionados should make tracks for Prague, where the National Gallery has a number of Dutch paintings from the 17th century on display along with 12 related pieces from other institutions as part of “Rembrandt & Co.,” through May 27.

The New York Times is reporting that the exhibition has been organized to bring together various pieces, sitters and compositions that were separated over the centuries. For example, Rembrandt's Scholar in his Study in Prague and his Bust of a Man in an Oriental Costume at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam both feature the same sitter in different roles and varied expressions. Govert Flinck’s reunited counter-pieces of Rembrandt as a Shepherd (from the Rijksmuseum) and Rembrandt´s wife Saskia as a Shepherdess  (from the Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum Braunschweig) is another special pairing.

“Rembrandt & Co.” is being held on the second floor of the Baroque Sternberg Palace, next to Prague Castle.
