David Taylor, Sally Palmer and Tina Sitwell with Buckland’s ’Rembrandt’

Our spring issue

This issue we're going outdoors with our stargazing feature that includes a beginner's guide to watching the night skies. We also introduce the first of our new three-part Journey of Discovery series, look at the way our places are commemorating the First World War centenary and explore the steps being taken to discover if our painting at Buckland Abbey is an original Rembrandt.

A taster of what's in this issue

  • Journey of discovery

    With our new three-part series, Journey of Discovery, our specially commissioned seasonal poster will help you and your family discover the great outdoors. Plus, we're giving our younger members the chance to win one of the three original pieces of artwork.

  • A Rembrandt in the room?

    Last year, a painting from Buckland Abbey caused a flurry of publicity when it was revealed there was a high chance that it was a Rembrandt. As the painting undergoes technical analysis and cleaning, Christine Sitwell, Paintings Conservation Adviser, explains why painting identification comes down to a combination of science and experience and details some of the techniques being used.
