ALL MASTER PAINTER’S WORKS IN ONE PLACE
How often do you get the chance to see all of Rembrandt’s works in one place?
The answer is: only now, in the RAI, during the unique exhibition “Discover Rembrandt”,
which can be visited until 1st September. For this occasion, reproductions are used,
in full-color, full-size and digitally restored, as if they had just left Rembrandt’s studio.
From a time perspective
At Discover Rembrandt it is all about the chronological order of the artworks, so that you can very well experience the story of the master painter from a time perspective and get a deeper insight into history.
Currently 317 paintings are attributed to Rembrandt. Only 41 of them are in Dutch collections. The remaining works have spread over more than 18 countries over the years. There are also disappeared, recently discovered and damaged works. With this concept, the desire to get all of Rembrandt’s paintings in one place has nevertheless been realized.
Tickle your (plastic) fancy
So, no paint and brushes, but prints on canvas, dibond and plastic. This makes it possible not only to display all of Rembrandt’s works, but also, for example, the Night Watch in its original state, including the parts cut off in 1715. To stimulate even more of your senses, at Discover Rembrandt you are allowed to stand very close to the works and also touch them. Even a relief print of The Jewish Bride from Japan has come over to show visitors how thick Rembrandt applied his paint.
Rembrandt in 360 degrees
Erik Hermida, director of Enterprise & Art and organizer of the KunstRAI, has a nice suggestion for those who are interested: “Enjoy a full day with Rembrandt! The idea of this exhibition is, that you can first see and discover everything about Rembrandt as a master painter. Right thereafter, in museum the Rembrandt House you can see where he lived and worked, learn about Rembrandt as a teacher, the collector, the entrepreneur. And to end your day in style, you can go to the Rijksmuseum to see some original works.”
A must see during this summer vacation!
