Rembrandt’s Late Works in landmark exhibition

Date Posted: 29/07/2014

This autumn, the National Gallery in London presents its first ever in-depth exploration of Rembrandt’s final years. Rembrandt: The Late Works – will run from 15th October to 18th January.

The exhibition features loans from around the world, and is an opportunity to experience the passion, emotion and innovation of Rembrandt, the greatest master of the Dutch Golden Age.   

Betsy Wieseman, the exhibition’s curator commented: “Even three-and-a-half centuries after his death, Rembrandt continues to astonish and amaze. His technical inventions, and his profound insight into human emotions, are as fresh and relevant today as they were in the 17th century.”

Rembrandt: The Late Works features approximately 40 paintings, 20 drawings and 30 prints. Key works include: The Jewish Bride, An Old Woman Reading, A Portrait of a Lady with a Lap Dog and a number of self-portraits.
