Amsterdam's famed Rijksmuseum began a historic restoration of Rembrandt's "The Night Watch," Monday, erecting a huge glass cage around the painting so the public can see the work carried out live. The multimillion-euro (dollar) makeover of the giant 1642 masterpiece, the survivor of a difficult history including several acts of vandalism, will also be streamed online so people around the globe can see it.Experts have recently noticed changes to the painting, with a white haze appearing on some parts, especially in the area around the knife damage, where it is bleaching out the figure of a small dog.
