伦勃朗的《夜巡》(1642)将经历数百万欧元的修复过程,这一计划可能要到明年进行,届时这幅画仍将在公众面前展出。这是阿姆斯特丹国立博物馆“有史以来最大的研究和修复工程”。阿姆斯特丹博物馆已经宣布,这幅画将被安置在荣誉美术馆的“最先进的透明玻璃室”中,该玻璃室由法国建筑师让-米歇尔·威尔莫特设计,并通过审核。所有修复工作在公众的视野下工作,修复过程也将在网上公开。

《夜巡》是世界上最著名的绘画作品之一。“它属于我们所有人,”策展人Taco Dibbits说。“这就是我们决定在博物馆内部进行公开修复的原因——每个人,不管他们在哪里,都能够在线跟踪这个过程。”

《下议院(Wikimedia Commons)》是伦勃朗的杰作——由市警卫队长委托——打破了团体肖像的规则,充满活力,光芒四射。如今人们所熟知的《夜巡》这个名称来源于这种颜料,这种颜料经过多年变暗,产生了一种夜间的色调——它在20世纪40年代被去除了。随着专家们注意到某些部分白度变白,油画表面的变化需要用扫描仪进行绘图。新技术,如宏观X射线荧光扫描,可以深入到不同的涂料层,以告知恢复过程,从2019年7月开始。这幅画上一次大规模的修复是在四十年前,当时,一名手持刀的精神病患者砍掉了这幅画。迪比特说:“保护工作通常是在密闭的幕后完成的,但这幅画非常重要,我们想分享这个非常重要的时刻。”

Rembrandt’s The Night Watch (1642) is to undergo a multi-million-Euro restoration process, likely to last years, which will see the painting remain on public display. It is the Rijksmuseum’s ‘largest research and restoration project in its history.’

The Amsterdam museum has announced that the painting will be housed in a ‘state-of-the-art clear glass chamber’ – designed by French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte – in the Gallery of Honour, with conservators working under the full view of the public. The restoration process will also be livestreamed online.

‘The Night Watch is one of the most famous paintings in the world. It belongs to us all,’ director Taco Dibbits said. ‘That is why we have decided to conduct the restoration within the museum itself – and everyone, wherever they are, will be able to follow the process online.’

Rembrandt’s masterpiece – commissioned by the leader of the city’s civic guard – broke the rules of group portraiture, filling the work with dynamism and brilliant use of lighting. The title by which it is known today originates in the varnish, which darkened over years to produce a nocturnal tint – it was removed in the 1940s.

Changes in the surface of the painting, with experts noticing a whiteness bleaching certain parts, require mapping the painting using a scanner. New technologies such as macro X-ray fluorescence scanning can delve into different paint layers to inform the restoration process, which begins in July 2019. The last time the work underwent a major restoration took place four decades ago, after the painting was slashed by a mentally ill man armed with a knife.

‘Conservation is usually done behind closed doors,’ Dibbits said, ‘but this is such an important painting […] and we want to share this very important moment.’
