    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Arkansas Arts Center is currently hosting a must-see exhibit that introduces you to one of the greatest private European art collections of all time.

    Executive Director Todd Herman stopped by "THV 11 This Morning" with more details.

    The Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London exhibition is open now through September 8.

    This exceptional painting collection, known as the Iveagh Bequest, resides at Kenwood House, a neoclassical villa in London. Now for the first time, due to a renovation of the villa, the world-famous collection has travelled to the U.S. where 48 of the greatest works of the Iveagh Bequest are currently exhibited. The four-city tour of the U.S. has included the Museum of Fine Arts, in Houston, Texas; the Milwaukee Art Museum, in Milwaukee, Wis.; the Seattle Art Museum, in Seattle, Wash. with the final stop on the tour being the Arkansas Arts Center.

    Many of the works have never traveled to the U.S. before or even been exhibited outside Kenwood. This is the first time a Rembrandt painting will be exhibited in Arkansas, and this is the last chance to see these beautiful paintings before they return to London.
