"The Night Watch: Rembrandt painting to be restored under world's gaze"


The Night Watch by Rembrandt, one of the world’s most spectacular paintings, is to be restored under the world’s gaze at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, its general director has told the Guardian.

The public will be invited to watch the intimate conservation process, both up close in the gallery itself and via an internet livestream, in what is believed to be the biggest ever undertaking of its kind.

Taco Dibbits said it was expected to be a slow and intricate project, which would take several years and cost millions of euros.

“It will be carried out under the eyes of the world, and people will be able to follow the conservation wherever they are, whenever they want,” the art historian, who has been head of the Rijksmuseum since 2016, said in an exclusive interview.

And for a bit of fun, here’s a flash mob recreating the painting.

It will be a supreme irony if a question from Mitchell ends up key to Kavanaugh's confirmation

Mitchell was hired by the Republicans to put a woman’s face and voice front and center at the questioning of Dr. Ford. The last thing they wanted was video and audio of all of the male Republicans pressuring Dr. Ford. They paid Mitchell to bring her prosecutorial skills to bear on Dr. Ford.

They kept Mitchell in to question Kavanaugh to create the illusion that they were being ‘fair.’ That all stopped when she asked her question about Kavanaugh’s July 1st calendar entry and Lindsay Graham abruptly and bombastically redirected the process away from Mitchell and back to the Republican Senators.

So did any of the Republicans actually cede their time to Mitchell or was that extra add on time

for Republicans in Kavanaugh questioning section only?


Anyone else noticed how self satisfied Kav looked when he thought he had turned the tables on

Blumenthal by accusing Blumenthal of impugning Renate in even asking the question about Kav’s reference to her in yearbook?

Classic scum moment.

So, was Lindsay's performance aimed at persuading some Republican whose vote is in doubt?

Sure seemed like that toward the end of his rant.

"We've got a filibuster, but not a single answer."

Has ANY Supreme Court nominee EVER shown such loss of demeanor?

Today's Republican talking point, as hammered by Mitchell, Kavanaugh and Graham:

Coordinated and funded by Democrats.

Of course, that was completely proved to be untrue by Ford’s and her attorneys’ answers.

Still, they’re sticking with it.

Such bullshit.

I must say I am more impressed with Senator Harris each time I hear her.
