One has to be a genius to be Rembrandt, not to buy his works
As our readers already know, the Nicholas Hall of the Winter Palace is hosting the exhibition “The Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer: Masterpieces of The Leiden Collection,” through mid-January 2019. The show revolves around a collection of Dutch Golden Age art that exceeds all other known private collections in both quality and scope. Its owners – the American couple Thomas Kaplan and Daphne Recanati Kaplan – managed, in 15 years, to assemble some 250 works by 17th-century Dutch masters. Russian with English translation.
