(Review in Dutch)

Vandaag in de Lakenhal in Leiden o.m. twee jonge Rembrandts gezien, waaraan je kunt zien dat hij nog aan het begin van een glansrijke carrière staat. Ook zijn vriend Lievens is te bewonderen en hij mag zeker in Rembrandts schaduw staan. Andere kopstukken uit de Gouden Eeuw zijn er eveneens te bewonderen zoals Gerard Dou, Frans van Mieris en Jan Steen. Het na drie jaar verbouwen deze zomer geopende museum toont ook moderne en hedendaagse kunst zoals Toorop, maar ook Jan Wolkers, weliswaar in Oegstgeest geboren maar toch ook een beetje Leidenaar. Wie ook uit Leiden kwam is Marinus van der Lubbe die de Reichstag in brand zou hebben gestoken uit protest tegen Hitler en zijn fascisten. Van der Lubbe wordt in Leiden als beeldhouwwerkje in herinnering gehouden.
