Rembrand’s Nachtwacht is a big picture. It’s not my favourite Rembrand (yet?) despite the fact that every time I discover something new in the painting. This time it was the hand of the main figure (Frans Banning Cocq) that stood out: turning the flat picture almost into a 3D representation. So I spent a bit more time in front of the Staalmeesters, as most of the other visitors had other stuff to do or look at.




At the Stedelijk, I had the pleasure to see a small selection of works of one of my favorite painters: Jean Dubuffet.
