Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Except as I don't read German, I have no idea what they are advertising. A museum display?

It's Dutch not German. I can read German and since German and Dutch have similarities, I can figure out some Dutch. It was an ad for the complete reopening of the Rikjsmuseum where The Night Watch by Rembrandt, the painting that was recreated, is exhibited. I did go to that museum in July, 2009 and a lot of it was closed, but The Night Watch was still on exhibit. It's a huge painting and the pride of the collection.

OK, I just clicked on the "show more" under Published on Apr 1, 2013 and there is an English translation!
