Its return to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts is celebrated by an exhibition featuring its pair, the Portrait of Agatha Bas (British Royal Collection). Drawings by Rembrandt and paintings and drawings by his pupils and artistic heirs are also exhibited. In one of the exhibition halls IRPA/KIK shows the technical side of the restoration: another way of looking at the painting...
