Back in October 2015, the French and Dutch governments teamed up to acquire two monumental portraits by Rembrandt. Under the shared custody agreement, the countries agreed to pass the works between the Louvre in Paris and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The paintings, which were previously on view in France, will remain on display in the Dutch capital through October 2. The works—painted in 1634—previously belonged to the Rothschild family and were rarely seen in public.
