Madrid, Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza
Monday 9 March 2020
On Monday, 9 March 2020, (the Monday after the opening of TEFAF Maastricht), the Thyssen-Bornemisza is hosting a symposium, Face to Face with Portraiture in Rembrandt’s Time, and has generously reserved 25 places for HNA members (free of charge, including luncheon). A number of slots will be reserved for early career scholars. The following day, the HNA group will visit the Prado with curators of the Dutch and Flemish collections.
This opportunity has been organized by HNA’s European liasons, Angela Jager and Jan Blanc. If you are interested in attending, please send a brief introduction (affiliation and your interest in attending) to Angela Jager (email@example.com) as soon as possible, and definitely by 1 March.
