Three Dutch museums exhibit the book chest in which Hugo de Groot supposedly fled from Slot Loevestein in 1621. But which one is the real one? Are Rembrandt’s paint bags in the Six Collection really his? And is Piet Hein’s silver bowl in the Rijksmuseum really the one from the Silver Fleet?
The show Historisch Bewijs (Historical Evidence) follows a team of experts from the Rijksmuseum during their groundbreaking research into these unique, historically significant artifacts. Head of History Martine Gosselink, Head of Conservation & Science Robert van Langh and curator Stephanie Archangel try to get to the bottom of it.
Historisch Bewijs was broadcast Fridays at 10:20 PM, at AVROTROS on NPO 2.
