La France et les Pays-Bas se partagent deux Rembrandt

Au terme de négociations à rebondissements, la France et les Pays-Bas ont finalement décidé d’acquérir, ensemble et pour 160 millions d’euros, deux portraits peints par Rembrandt, une première dans le monde des musées.

Les portraits de Maerten Soolmans et Oopjen Coppit à la veille de leur mariage seront exposés ensemble, alternativement au Louvre et au Rijksmuseum.

L’accord, scellé lors d’une rencontre à New York entre le premier ministre néerlandais Mark Rutte et le président français François Hollande, a également permis d’éviter une« guerre des enchères » entre les deux pays.

La Haye et Paris débourseront chacun 80 millions d’euros pour acquérir les tableaux et posséderont chacun « la moitié de chaque tableau », a expliqué M. Pijbes, selon lequel cette collaboration semblait « encore impossible il y a quelques mois ».

Une solution associant les deux pays semble se profiler, les ministres Pellerin et Bussemaker proposant que chaque musée acquière un des portraits et que la paire soit exposée alternativement dans les deux établissements.

Mais en septembre, La Haye dit vouloir que les deux toiles rejoignent les Pays-Bas et être prête à mettre 80 millions d’euros sur la table, le Rijksmuseum se faisant fort de réunir les 80 millions restants.

Paris et La Haye ont finalement trouvé un terrain d’entente. « J’ai eu des contacts intensifs avec mes homologues français ces derniers jours », a assuré Mme Bussemaker.

Whether you’re buying art in the interest of investment, collecting, or interior decorating, minimalist pieces have a rare appeal. Steering away from the figurative work that defined previous periods in art history, post-1945 Italian, German, and Austrian pieces grapple with the metaphysical.


Alberto Giacometti at National Portrait Gallery, London

In his Fifties and Sixties heyday, Alberto Giacometti was seen as a sculptor who did portraits on the side. Nowadays, that position is reversed. The Swiss-born sculptor’s spindly bronze figures, once considered among the defining images of modern art, are barely looked at, while interest in his haunted, hollow-eyed paintings of people is rising all the time.
