rijksmuseum: BBC special

Available in 4 parts via YouTube, here is a great BBC special featuring the reopening of the Rijksmuseum, hosted by Andrew Graham-Dixon.

Although this video doesn’t specifically address the lighting, I highly recommend it.  The entire collection is illuminated by LED lighting from Philips.

BBC A Night at the Rijksmuseum.
Andrew Graham-Dixon goes behind the scenes at the Rijksmuseum as the staff prepare to open the doors following a ten-year renovation, the most significant ever undertaken by a museum. Featuring over 8,000 works of art, Holland’s national museum tells the story of 800 years of Dutch history and houses a world-famous collection including masterpieces by artists from Vermeer to Rembrandt. So, as the final paintings are rehung and objects settle into their new home, has the long wait been worth it ?
First broadcast: 18 Apr 2013.
