After several months on show in the Louvre in Paris, they were unveiled at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, ahead of an exhibition opening Saturday.The paintings have been in private hands for almost four centuries, and have belonged to the Rothschilds since 1877 . Prior to going on show in the Louvre, they had only once been seen in public, in 1956 . After the Amsterdam exhibition, the paintings will be renovated and then go back on show in the Dutch capital for five more years, before returning to the Louvre for the next five.
