Inspired by Rembrandt
100 Years of Collecting by The Rembrandt House Museum
7 June – 1 September 2019
The Rembrandt House is not just Rembrandt’s former home and workshop; for more than a century it has been a museum with its own collection. The collection consists primarily of works on paper. Rembrandt’s etchings are of course well represented, but the museum also has prints by his predecessors and contemporaries as well as by modern and contemporary artists who were inspired by Rembrandt.
This exhibition will feature the most remarkable examples from the museum’s collection. Discover the surprising selection of old and new, big and small, fine and sketchy. You will see work by such artists as Rembrandt, Hercules Segers, Edgar Degas and Pablo Picasso, and also by Horst Janssen, Willem den Ouden, Charles Donker and Glenn Brown.
