Our European Adventure 2018
Amsterdam Day 2
Kees also gave us a tour of the Rembrandt House. Although all Rembrandt personal possessions were sold when he went bankrupt, the property lists used in the bankruptcy auction has allowed modern day curators to find similar objects and furnish the house the way it must have looked in Rembrandt’s time.
(A side note about the Rijksmuseum. There is a wonderful app for your phone or notebook with museum information, identification of the most notable pieces within the collection and videos explaining the pieces in great detail. I highly recommend downloading the app if you are thinking of traveling to the museum. One site that I found is: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/rijksstudio/works-of-art/masterpieces ).
