Late Rembrandt

Yesterday we visited the Rembrandt exhibition in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. And we can truly say, it was well worth the trip. This is the first time that an exhibition has been dedicated to the late work of one of the greatest painters who ever lived: Rembrandt. Over 100 of the paintings, drawings and prints that Rembrandt produced in the final phase of his life can be seen here, brought to us from museums and private collections across the globe. So if you want to see these unique paintings and drawings, this is your once in a lifetime chance! The exhibition is there until May 17 next.

Oh golly, if I ever make it over there, and it's in my deepest thoughts to do so, I am going to visit there too! Thank you for sharing this.

I would love to visit this exhibition; I think it was on in London first. We saw a wonderful BBC programme on Rembrandt and his late works, presented by Simon Schama, and he was so enthusiastic. He was visbly moved by the painting, “The Jewish Bride”. This blogger obviously felt the same way about the programme as I did.
