From 13 April to 3 September 2006 Rembrandt the narrator: etchings from the Frits Lugt collection shows Rembrandt’s skill in depicting stories in his etchings. The direct and convincing way in which he works the subjects, which vary from everyday scenes to biblical and mythological stories, is very distinctive. Frits Lugt (1884-1970), an authority on Rembrandt, collected all the etchings made by Rembrandt during his career. This famous collection is being loaned to an exhibition for the first time in its entirety.
(This exhibition replaces the planned Rembrandt at Court exhibition).
2006 marks the 400th anniversary of the birth of Rembrandt van Rijn in Leiden. His hometown is celebrating the occasion with lots of activities. Throughout the year, Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal is organizing three special Rembrandt exhibitions, supplemented by an introductory presentation about his life and work in Leiden and expositions of modern artists who have been inspired by Rembrandt.
