This might be the most important exhibition of the year! Never before the Rijksmuseum did use an exhibition of all Rembrandt’s works from the collection: 22 paintings, 60 drawings and 300 prints. Together they give an unparalleled image of Rembrandt as a human being, of what he saw around him, what fascinated him, how he told his stories and how innovative he was in his work. His penetrating self-portraits, intimate drawings, striking representations of emotions and everyday scenes show that Rembrandt is still one of the greatest artists today.
