Culture File Weekly Specials

The Culture File Weekly: Rembrandt Special

In this special All-Rembrandt-All-The-Time edition, we travel to Amsterdam to join in the Netherland's celebrations of the 350th Anniversary of Rembrandt Van Rijn. For the event, the Rijksmuseum has on display every one of its Rembrandt holdings - a treasure through which curator and Rembrandt biographer, Jonathan Bikker leads Culture File.
