Dates | 8 Mar-3 June
Best in show | Rembrandt
Rembrandt’s wedding portraits of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit – his only life-size, standing, full-length portraits – were jointly purchased by the Rijksmuseum and the Louvre for €160m in 2016, and this is the first chance to see them – in their full glory after restoration. They are joined by portraits of society figures over four centuries by masters including Cranach the Elder, Veronese, Velázquez, Gainsborough, Reynolds, Sargent and Manet.
