    Rembrandt’s masterpiece The Night Watch is to be restored in public at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam beginning in July 2019.  The 1642 work will be restored in a painstaking process likely to take years, and all on public display.  The varnish on the painting has darkened over the years, dimming the original colours.  Here is a video about the the project from the Rijksmuseum.
