The National Gallery opens another new show this weekend, with work by Dutch master Jan Lievens. I'm a huge fan of Dutch art, and love the glow that emanates from the paintings. Many of Lievens' paintings were originally attributed to Rembrandt, and it's pretty easy to see why — the pair were friends and share similar techniques and subject matter.
The show is a great introduction to an artist I knew little about, and it includes paintings, drawings and prints. Opens Sunday with two lectures on Lievens.
