Dutch Portraits at NG

Frans Hals - Willem Coymans (1645) detailThe next biggy at The National Gallery, London, is Dutch Portraits: The Age of Rembrandt and Frans Hals, which opens on 27 June and continues until 16 September 2007. The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis - the gallery that did a Brillo-pad job on Vermeer's Girl With A Pearl Earring - is making its first major international loan in 50 years for this exhibition. Admission charges for timed entry are diabolical: adults £10, silver surfers £9. Don't even think about it. Go on Wednesday evenings after 6pm and get in for £5. It will be in the Sainsbury Wing.
