REMBRANDT IN THE RIJKSMUSEUM
The year of Rembrandt will be celebrated throughout the country and Amsterdam is no exception. Rembrandt’s most important works can be viewed throughout the year in the Rijksmuseum, but for this special occasion, two exclusive exhibitions will be organised about the painter and the Golden Age. From February 15 to June 10, the Rijksmuseum will go all out by exhibiting all of his works. This includes 22 paintings, 60 drawings and 300 prints!
From October 11 to January 19, 2020, the Rijksmuseum will hold a second exposition: Rembrandt-Velázquez, which will feature works from the two important masters from the Netherlands and Spain. The works will be displayed in pairs so that the paintings will enter into a dialogue about topics including realism, emotions, beauty and religion.
VISIT THE REMBRANDT HOUSE MUSEUM
Have you always wanted to know how Rembrandt mixed his paints, or did you want to know where the floor creaked when he walked through his home? Make sure to pay a visit to the Rembrandt House Museum. Special exhibits on the life and work of the painter will be held here as well. A number of lesser-known works will be on display, and his social life will also be one of the museum’s topics. After all, he wasn’t just a master painter, he was also a master networker. The exposition starts on February 1 and lasts until May 19, 2019.
From June 17, the exposition ‘Inspired by Rembrandt’ will take over the Rembrandt House Museum. This will feature the most exceptional pieces from the collection of the museum. These aren’t just works of Rembrandt himself, but also include works from Pablo Picasso and Edgar Degas, among other artists.
