Who exactly painted Tobit and Anna in the Willem van der Vorm Collection? The panel was subjected to scientific analysis in 2010, and the conclusion was that it originated in Rembrandt's studio. But Jeroen Giltaij, curator of this museum, and Ernst van de Wetering, head researcher of the Rembrandt Research Project, do not agree on who actually wielded the brush. Giltaij bases his opinion on intuition and traditional connoisseurship; Van de Wetering approaches the issue with the probability theory of the scientist Thomas Bayes. In this video, Jeroen Giltaij explains why he believes that it must have been painted by an apprentice of Rembrandt and not by the master himself. From 24 March 2012, the cleaned and restored painting will be exhibited in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen; this video is part of the presentation. More video's: www.arttube.nl
The Three Mary's at the Tomb surfaced around 1850 in Antwerp. Immediately it was attributed to Jan van Eyck. But at the major exhibition of Flemish primitives that was held in Bruges in 1902, it was presented as the only surviving painting by Hubert van Eyck, Jan's mysterious elder brother. Since the Second World War, there has been doubt: Jan? Hubert? Or perhaps some other painter? In the run-up to the major exhibition The Road to Van Eyck in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, The Three Mary's at the Tomb was examined once more and restored by Annetje Boersma and Eva van Zuien. This video shows the restoration process and the findings of the restorers about the composition of the paint and the working method of the painter. In addition, curator Friso Lammertse sets out on an investigation; he visits three locations that have played an important role in the history of the painting: Vierhouten, Richmond and Bruges. He is confronted with some unexpected surprises.

Gerrit van Honthorst was one of the outstanding artists from Utrecht, the Netherlands, who traveled to Rome in the early 17th century and was inspired by the revolutionary paintings of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. After Honthorst returned to Utrecht in 1620, his Caravaggist paintings were greatly admired and had an enormous impact on other Dutch masters, including Jan Lievens and Rembrandt van Rijn. Nevertheless, until recently, few of Honthorst’s masterpieces have entered American collections. Arthur K. Wheelock, Jr., Curator of Northern Baroque Painting at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and Professor of Art History at the University of Maryland, in College Park, explores the reasons why so few Americans were drawn to the artist’s works until recently, and he examines a few of the masterpieces that have now come to the United States, including works in the collections of the National Gallery of Art and Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo.

This mini documentary explores how a lost Rembrandt painting was uncovered and authenticated by the Rembrandt Research Project in 2011 using innovative scientific data generated by an atomic particle accelerator at Brookhaven, Long Island.

Now, through a melding of innovative scientific techniques and art connoisseurship, completely different paintings and important clues about the artists themselves are being uncovered one layer at a time using xray fluorescence This mini documentary is from a press conference held on December 2nd, 2011 at the Rembrandt House Museum in Amsterdam, where the painting - "Study of an Old Man" - was unveiled to the public by Rembrandt Research Project director Dr. Ernst van de Wetering and material scientist Dr. Joris Dik. An in depth one hour documentary titled "Out Of The Shadows" (http://shopatsullivan.com/index.php/out-of-the-shadows-hidden-masterpieces-widescreen-dvd-2012.html), narrated by Donald Sutherland and produced/directed by Kevin Sullivan (Anne of Green Gables, Road To Avonlea, Wind At My Back), also explores the work of Dr. Joris Dik finding hidden masterpieces such as the recently discovered "Laughing Rembrandt" and "Head of a Peasant Woman" under existing paintings by Rembrandt and Van Gogh.
