A 'must see'
Rembrandt's painting of Catrina Hooghsaet has gone on display at National Museum Cardiff today until the 21st of March next year. We're delighted to have it here, and are very grateful for the loan from Penrhyn Castle in North Wales. It's a special opportunity for the museum, and I'm sure it will be a popular attraction.
First Minister Rhodri Morgan has described it as a real coup for Cardiff, stating: "Rembrandt is a towering figure in the history of art. Next to having the Mona Lisa on loan, I cannot think of any better ‘must see' attraction that we could possibly have in the National Museum." Well, that's one satisfied visitor. Make sure you come along to see it for yourself!
