Framing Rembrandt

Exhibition: 4 November 2023 - 5 February 2024

Rembrandt has many faces: the genius, the miller’s son, the rebel. All of these labels were pasted onto the famous artist over the centuries. In the exhibition Framing Rembrandt, The Rembrandt House Museum will take you on a journey along four centuries of imaging, through art, documents and surprising objects. Additionally, one of the exhibition rooms will be converted into a cinema, where fragments from biopics (biographical fiction films) about Rembrandt will be shown; from the earliest film from 1920 and a Nazi propaganda film from 1942, to the latest film adaptation of Rembrandt’s life made in 2006.

Film still from Rembrandt fecit 1669 (1977), directed by Jos Stelling
