2019-12-doc2 Looking for Rembrandt on Dutch TV

Early this year I reported the transmission on English TV of the documentary ‘Looking for Rembrandt‘. It contains a programma, with three separate films of 60 minutes, see blog/2019-03-doc13-looking-for-rembrandt.

The third programme contains some lines of an interview I gave (in September 2018) regarding Rembrandt’s financial troubles. Simply because it only came to my attention just a few days ago, I missed it that the programme has been transmitted on Dutch national television, in the first two weeks in December 2019. See

The documentary is in English, with subtitles in Dutch. It has been translated very literary: ‘Op zoek naar Rembrandt’. (

In the third programme, rather puzzling to me, I am introduced as ‘advocaat faillissementsrecht’, which is something like ‘attorney-at-law bankruptcy law’, which is a very honourable function, of course, but a clear misrepresentation.
