The painting 'The Last Judgement' by Lucas van Leyden is his absolute masterpiece. Normally it is in museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, but now it is on loan in Amsterdam.
Over the last 450 years this altarpiece has left Leiden for brief periods only twice, which makes its temporary relocation to Amsterdam a historic event. The triptych is without doubt the jewel in the crown of Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, which is scheduled to close its doors this autumn for a large-scale renovation and extension project. The Last Judgement is on show in the Rijksmuseum’s Gallery of Honour (where the most important works of art of the Rijksmuseum can be seen) until 23 August 2018.
