Watching Operation Night Watch

Rembrandt’s famous painting The Night Watch at Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum is not my favorite work from the master, or my favorite painting in the great institution. However, every time that I’m in Amsterdam somehow I find myself in front of the iconic work of art. This month, the museum has begun its most significant restoration project of the priceless Rembrandt ever undertaken. Dubbed “Operation Night Watch” by the Rijksmuseum, the endeavor can be seen without the cost of airfare to the Netherlands. We can all follow along in real time online via a dedicated website.
