Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age the Unlimited Edition to Pieter Roelofs of the Rijksmuseum
The launch of the fourth reprint of Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age the Unlimited Edition on October 21st has been marked with the handover of a copy to Pieter Roelofs, Head of Paintings and Sculpture at the Rijksmuseum, by Marcel Wanders.
The reprint of the groundbreaking art publication, created by Marcel Wanders studio and publisher Komma, contains twenty extra pages with new calligraphic work and two famous wedding paintings by Rembrandt: Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit. These were the first and only life-sized, full-length painted pendant portraits Rembrandt ever made in 1634, and were recently purchased by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Louvre in Paris. This edition also introduces the world to expert Pieter Roelofs, whose rich perspective on history, Rembrandt and the Amsterdam lifestyle from days long gone, elevates the publication. Roelofs also details the concept and relationship between the paintings and their journey to the Rijksmuseum, and sheds new light on Operation Night Watch – the largest research and conservation project to date for Rembrandt’s masterpiece. In addition to his work for the Rijksmuseum, Roelofs is also chairman of the jury of the acclaimed Dutch television programme Project Rembrandt that aired its second season in 2020.
