Old Masters Unite In Amsterdam

Amsterdam's two main museums will join forces next year for an exhibition which unites two European Old Masters Rembrandt and Caravaggio. The Rembrandt-Caravaggio exhibition, jointly curated by the Rijksmuseum, will take place at the city's Van Gogh Museum from 24 February to 18 June. The exhibition will mark the close of events celebrating the birth of Dutch artist Rembrandt 400 years ago. He and Italian contemporary Caravaggio dominated Baroque art in the 1600s. Twenty five masterpieces will go on display in an exhibition described by organisers as as artistic "confrontation". For the full story - click the title Irish Art
