Optium Museum Acrylic®

The Challenge

  • To protect this highly prized painting while providing an optimal viewing experience.

The Solution

Optium Museum Acrylic®

Allows viewers to see the painting rather than their own reflections.

99% UV blocking
Protects the painting from the most damaging light wavelengths, helping prevent fading and degradation.

Acrylic is half the weight of glass and shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to art work and visitors.

Anti-static protection exceeds that of glass
Makes for safer, easier framing and less cleaning.

Abrasion resistant
A durable hard coat protects against scratches from cleaning and general exposure to the public.


The Work

The 76 year old preacher, once court preacher of Prince Maurits, wears a skullcap and a tabard, a fur-lined cloak, clothing in which older scholars preferred to be portrayed. The hands, painted much flatter than the face, are perhaps the work of one of Rembrandt’s studio assistants’.

Tru Vue and Larson Juhl Netherlands were pleased to support the Rijksmuseum’s “Year of Rembrandt” celebration with an in-kind donation of Optium Museum Acrylic® towards the framing of this work.
