British Prime Minister Theresa May is to face a vote of no-confidence in her own parilamentary party this evening, after Tory rebels mustered enough letters from Conservative MPs supporting the move. May faces a revolt over her Brexit deal and postponed a vote on it in parliament this week, saying it was clear she would not win majority support for it.

Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn is the subject of a small but fascinating exhibition at Paris's Jacquemart-André museum called Rembrandt in Confidence or Rembrandt Intime.

The cosy temporary exhibition rooms in the former mansion of the 19th-century art-loving couple, the Jacquemart-Andrés, offer detailed viewing of Rembrandt's paintings, drawings, etchings and other prints from his youth to his old age.

The exhibition, which includes some magnificent and intriguing pieces from other collections, both public and private, closes soon and most pieces will return home.

However, the three paintings in the Jacquemart-André, each of which bears witness to a different period of Rembrandt’s work, remain as part of the collection in the house where the couple lived.

The museum is following up with another temporary selection of works from another private collection usually housed in Spain.

Businesswoman Alicia Koplowitz is lending some of her paintings by artists, beginning with Rembrandt’s Spanish contemporary Francisco de Zurburan and ending with modern masters Pablo Picasso and Marc Rothko.

The exhibition runs from 3 March till July 2017.
