Unseen Rembrandts go on show

An exhibition of the late works of Rembrandt opens at London's National Gallery this week.

It is the first step in a journey that will take many of the works back to Amsterdam, the city where they were created in the 17th Century.

Rembrandt: The Late Works at the National Gallery, has been organised in collaboration with Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum.

The exhibition is the first to explore Rembrandt's final years from about 1652 to his death in 1669.
