An enduring storyteller; a master of light – Rembrandt is one of the greatest painters who ever lived. This landmark exhibition, opening October 4, 2019, in Dulwich Picture Gallery, celebrates 350 years since his death with 35 of his iconic paintings, etchings and drawings, including major international loans from The Louvre and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum.
Arranged thematically, Rembrandt’s Light will take you on a journey from high drama and theatricality, to the contemplative and spiritual, showcasing his use of light. The exhibition focusses on the period from 1639–1658, when he lived in his ideal house at Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Museum Het Rembrandthuis). Its striking, light-infused studio was where Rembrandt created his most exceptional work including The Denial of St Peter and The Artist’s Studio.
The exhibition will run through February 2, 2020.
