Rembrandt’s The Night Watch is Getting Repaired

Rembrandt's The Night Watch
“The Night Watch” Rembrandt’s iconic painting will be restretched. This process is to get get rid of deformations that have formed in its top left corner according to the Netherlands National Museum.

The Process

Measuring in at 149.4×178.5-inchs, the canvas will be removed and placed on a new wooden stretcher next month. This should remove the ripple that was caused when the iconic painting wa housed in a temporary gallery sometime between 2003 to 2013. The ripples were likely caused by temperature changes in the gallery according to the museum.

What is Expected

“We feel this is very important to do to for the long term preservation of the painting. The deformation (is) then expected to relax and the painting then will assume a flatter, more even surface,” said Petria Noble, the head of paintings conservation at the museum.
