Late Rembrandt

February 12 2015 to May 17 2015

The Rijksmuseum presents its first major retrospective of Rembrandt van Rijn’s late works dating from c. 1652. This landmark exhibition, the world’s largest ever, brings together more than 90 paintings, drawings and prints from the world’s leading museums and private collections to showcase Rembrandt at the height of his power.

“For the first time in over twenty years, the Rijksmuseum will again be organising a Rembrandt exhibition, giving every generation the chance to renew its acquaintance with the great Master of the Golden Age.” Wim Pijbes, General Director of the Rijksmuseum

Daring, individual and intimate. Emerging from the shadow of tragic personal losses and financial setbacks, Rembrandt produced some of his finest work in his final years. By experimenting with paint and light, he achieved an unparalleled emotional depth, leading to his most daring, individual and intimate works.
