Queen Beatrix has opened a large exhibition of Dutch Renaissance painter Lucyas van Leyden, whose works inspired his townsman Rembrandt.

The exhibition in Leiden brings together over 250 works of Lucas van Leyden, who died in 1533 at the age of 40. Among them are prints, drawings and paintings, including a large number of altar pieces. The show also includes works by other northern Renaissance artists such as the German painter Albrecht Duerer and the Antwerp landscape painter Joachim Patinir.

Museums around the world, including the Louvre in Paris and the British Museum in London, have lent works for the Leiden exhibition.
