Only 19 more nights until you can feast your eyes on one of the most unique items from our collection: a faience violin. This violin is unique for its Delft Blue painting and the arresting head above the pegs. The violin was really made to please the eye and not the ear, as it can’t actually be played. #Rijksmuseum

Only 4 more nights until what every Vermeer fan dreams of will once again be on view in the Gallery of Honour: four of his most beautiful works side by side. We can’t decide which is our favourite, just like parents can’t decide which of their children is their favourite. But anyway, which is your favourite?

Only 9 more nights... until you can once again see this 'Tower Mill at Wijk bij Duurstede' in the Gallery of Honour. It is the ultimate Dutch landscape: low, flat, a lot of water and especially a lot of sky. And you guessed it, it’s by Jacob van Ruisdael.

Only 21 more nights until you can see this lighthouse in the new Special Collections gallery. And special it is. It’s a model of the cast iron lighthouse on the south-western tip of Sumatra, which remained standing after Krakatoa erupted while everything else in the surrounding area was destroyed.

Only 20 more nights until you can once again see Adriaen Coorte's Still life with asparagus (1697). Coorte remains a bit of a mystery; his still life paintings are very unlike the extravagant still lifes of his contemporaries.
