Marking the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, this collection of rarely seen prints and drawings offers a new view of this Old Master’s ingenuity. The exhibition reveals the immediacy and personal nature of his prints and drawings which, unlike his paintings, were usually made on his own initiative.
Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) is among the best-loved artists in the world. The British Museum has one of the greatest collections of Rembrandt’s works on paper and a selection of these treasures is being exhibited to mark this milestone anniversary.
Thematic displays of self-portraits, landscapes, portraits and biblical scenes showcase his artistic development and working methods, while chronological comparisons reveal how he tirelessly pushed boundaries.
Comprising 65 prints and drawings, this stunning exhibition will highlight Rembrandt’s technical and creative ingenuity on paper.
