Rembrandt museum

The Rembrandt Museum works in the building that was its home between years 1639 and 1658. One is a house of two plants constructed at the beginning of century XVII, although its present facade is been from a later remodeling.

Until the end of century XIX, after to be divided in two parts, the house was home of different families, who altered their aspect in diverse forms. Its state was deteriorated remarkably, and its demolition was only avoided because Rembrandt had spent there several years of its life.

After arduous works of restoration, Reina Wilhelmina inaugurated the museum in 1911. Since then, the building lodges an important amount of the most outstanding works of Rembrandt, in its majority donated or obtained by the foundation that is in charge to administer it. In the halls abiertos to the public, the form recreates in which they were by the artist during his residence in the house.

We see what can be observed there:

Lobby. Formerly, the walls of this room were covered with paintings of Rembrandt, while he lived there. But one was not about a exhibition like the present one, but a sample with profit aims, since the teacher lived on his art.

Waiting room. In this elegant room, it received his clients. Also it exhibited there many of his works, along with other outstanding pieces of Italian and flamenco teachers.

Main room. Besides painter, Rembrandt was a capable recorder. In this room the bronze press and pieces were located the recorded.

The study. Although is known it with this name, there the famous painter not only worked, but also he rested and he slept. In this luck of factory, living room and dormitory, spent its time most of, and kept the paintings that it did not try to sell, along with others from artists very considered by him.

The kitchen. Although it seems strange, this is a very interesting site of the house. There Rembrandt had had its collection rare objects, the majority of originating them of distant countries.
