The fourth quarter of 2014 sees the opening of a long awaited exhibition at The National Gallery in London. “Rembrandt:The Final Years” brings together around 90 works of the artist’s oeuvre, drawn from the collections of major European and American Museums including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Mauritshuis in The Hague. The exhibition, which runs from October 2014 until January 2015, will focus on Rembrandt’s late works as the artist continued to find new ways of expressing his extraordinary talents. This period is often considered to represent the pinnacle of his career, a time during which Rembrandt gave full rein to his innermost thoughts, concerns and observations through the medium of soulful and painfully honest paintings. After its conclusion in London the exhibition will move to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam where it will run until May 2015.
To celebrate the opening of the exhibition we will be arranging a lecture on Rembrandt in London during the early part of 2014. At the time of writing we are still finalising the details and will be sending out invitations shortly. If you would like to be considered for this please do get in touch.

Whether as a by-product of the financial squeeze or simply a realisation of the treasures waiting to be unearthed closer to home, we’ve witnessed an uptake in the number of groups booking UK trips for 2010. Each year we arrange quite a few tours on the domestic front, the majority of which focus either on British stately homes and gardens (both public and private) or on visits to some of the UK’s leading provincial galleries and museums, often in the company of a curator. The familiar hallmarks of our European tours such as first-rate guides and lecturers, little-known and crowd-free visits as well as an excellent choice of hand-picked, centrally located hotels are also key features of our UK itineraries. A prime example of such is a tour to Norfolk which many of our groups have enjoyed; the itinerary encompasses a mix of the illustrious (such as the magnificent house and gardens at Sandringham) as well as less-celebrated but equally rewarding visits such as the Walpole Houses and Holkham Estate with its magnificent collection of fine and decorative art.
