The 400th anniversary of Rembrandt’s birth in 2006 provides an occasion for museums worldwide to celebrate the star of The Dutch Golden Age. At Statens Museum for Kunst we celebrate the genius with the exhibition ‘Rembrandt? The Master and his workshop’ February 3 – May 14. The symposium will take place in conjunction with the end of the exhibition benefiting from the fact that conservators and art historians from the lending museums all over the world come to Copenhagen to pack their paintings. The speakers take this opportunity to present ‘work in progress’ to colleagues rarely gathered in one place. The papers cover a large range of topics related to Rembrandt and his circle. The theoretical or methodological outset varies from technical art history to matters of style and contextual approaches.
