Rembrandt in America

Exhibition: 19 February - 28 May 2012

From the museum website, 26 July 2011

Rembrandt in America will be the first major exhibition to explore in depth the collecting of Rembrandt paintings in America. Consisting of approximately fifty works, the exhibition will bring together autograph paintings by Rembrandt as well as others thought to be by the artist when they entered American collections but whose attributions can no longer be maintained. The exhibition therefore also presents a survey of the long career of Rembrandt as a painter, including his studio and a broader network of adapters, followers, and copyists. Rembrandt in America will be unique in offering the public a rare opportunity to examine the evolving opinions and methods of scholars and collectors regarding what constituted an autograph Rembrandt painting over a period of more than a century.

The exhibition will travel to the North Carolina Museum of Art: October 30, 2011–January 22, 2012, and Minneapolis Institute of Arts: June 24–September 16, 2012.
