Big article in NRC Handelsblad.
An employee of (IIRC) Sotheby's was asked for background info on another work by Raden Saleh that came up for auction, in 2007 or so, and she went on a wonderful quest through archives and found a letter by Saleh describing the tiger pic. Also there was some evidence of it hanging in the staircase of Het Loo (when it was still a residence, not a museum). It was found rolled up and squashed in some depot (not at the Loo palace) in horrible condition, almost beyond repair. I don't remember if the article stated who paid for the restoration, but it must have fetched something between 3 and 5 million euros. The Tropenmuseum would have been able to get that kind of money together (if we can do it for a T-Rex skeleton, this picture should make it too).

The folio with drawings was sold to a Fentener van Vlissingen - he will take good care of it for posterity no doubt - and i sicerely hope he will allow access to it by historians and art historians.

Anyway, they should've stuck to real estate...

So Alexia can pass her crutches on to her granny. Princess Beatrix underwent surgery on her right knee
at the Franciscus Vlietland hospital,Schiedam this morning. Like her left knee in 2005 her right knee was replaced by an artificial joint. She will stay a few days at the hospital and later recover at home.

It was quite unexpected, so Maxima is going to take over an engagement the Princess would have at Oct 4th.

Hope she will get well soon  Hug

Anirac, the resident expert on Beatrix...(and anyone else who might know!). I'd read in the press and royal forums that Beatrix was going to attend Peres funeral, but I haven't managed to find a single picture of her there. I've seen Rutte though. The knee operation was a couple of days after the funeral no? Perhaps she didn't attend because of her upcoming surgery?

I imagine they didn't want to offer the painting to the Dutch art institutions since they would be seen as greedy and out-of-touch if they asked for money for something that was theirs by virtue of their position as heirs of a former King. The press and politicians could have argued that it already belonged to the State or that the RF should donate such an important painting. So they quietly sold it to a museum as far away as they could find, and for a while it worked. Wink

@Clara, in regard to your question

According to the following article in Dutch Media both prime Minister Rutte as princess Beatrix would attend the funeral as mentioned by Israelian media. But at time of publishing this article the presence of Beatrix wasn't confirmed by the RVD or Royal House.

http://www.ad.nl/dossier-...-uitvaart-peres~aa8378d8/

When I search with Beatrix funeral Peres, I encounter several Israelian media which state that Beatrix is expected. So no confirmation of her real presence, just that they are expecting her.

The following tweet (in Dutch) states:

"No trace of Princess Beatrix at the funeral of Peres, despite previously reports by the Israeli press"

https://twitter.com/obk/status/781758232079507456

The comments on this Tweet also state that the RVD has no visit of Beatrix listed and that at the time she was in the hospital because of knee surgery.

Dutch Parliament wants to get rid of a special tax structure for the king. Yesterday, Monday October 10, RTL News reported on secret agreements that would be made more than forty years ago  regarding financial compensation for the head of state. Since 1973 the Oranjes had to pay tax on the return on their private assets, but according to RTL at the time agreed in secret that the royal family would be compensated.

A majority in Parliament wants to know how it was done exactly at that time. If then was indeed agreed that then Queen Juliana and her successors Queen Beatrix and King Willem- Alexander would be compensated this should stop.

PVDA (= Labour) leader Samson stated that a tax benefit for the king is out of our time. He thinks that Prime Minister Rutte should disclose business. "If you have to pay taxes and then get completely reimbursed through another way, you pay virtually no tax, so it seems to me this has to be changed."

SP (= Socialists) leader Roemer sees the developments with "increasing amazement". According to him to Oranjes simply have to be taxes. And is not explainable if they would recover it through a back door.

D66 leader Pechtold adds that "it does not appear as transparent to the so-called transparency about the monarchy." He also finds it strange that someone pays taxes, but in practice they actually do not.

According VVD faction leader Zijlstra it is right that questions are asked. "They will have to answer to the government and if we have the facts on the table, we draw conclusions." He wants to not walk ahead. "But we are not for evading taxes."

Also, CDA leader Buma only comes with a judgment if he knows the facts. "It is now up to the Prime Minister" SGP leader Van der Staaij shares this view. He emphasizes that also the Royal Family should go according to the law.

Within two weeks the 2de Kamer will deal with the budget of the Royal Family. Then this issue will be extensively discussed.

Then there is also talk about the benefits of Princess Amalia after her eighteenth birthday. Many MPs are questioning the size of the amount, about one and a half million euro per year. Samson said about it that it is logical that they will be reimbursed to prepare her for her future role. "But you and I had much less during our student time. That benefit can be much lower."


VVD leader Zijlstra added that in his studying didn't cost half a million. "But I do not know what additional costs they have."

Yesterday it was the annual photocall with the Dutch royals in Lech, Austria.
Not only the official press was able to make pictures, some Dutch tourists also managed to make some selfies with the king and queen
