Most exhibitions cannot have this privilege, but the upcoming one in Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden is definitely a special one. On March 19, Queen Beatrix is going to open the new "Lucas van Leyden and the Renaissance"
A unique exhibition since this is the first time that Lucas van Leyden's paintings will be presented together with other of his contemporaries from the Netherlands and abroad. The exhibition will be open to public from March 20 till June 26.
Note that Lucas van Leyden is characterised as the most important Renaissance artist in the Northern Netherlands.
Museum De Lakenhal is organising this exhibition in cooperation with Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
