Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated but this major new show hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum was an event like no other. Given exclusive, privileged access to both galleries, the film documents this landmark exhibition whilst interweaving Rembrandt’s life story with behind-the-scenes preparations at these world famous institutions.

The exhibition focuses on the highlights from the final years of Rembrandt’s life, commonly thought to be his finest years. The masterpieces he produced during this period could be called his defining works, with each piece so soulful and honest that they helped sculpt our idea of Rembrandt as a man and as an artist.

This film explores each of the exhibition’s key works, through contributions from specially invited guests including curators and leading art historians. For many, Rembrandt is the greatest artist that ever lived and this film seeks to explore the truth about the man behind the legend.

Runtime:90m

Shown on the Kate’s BIG Screen!

OTHER FILMS IN THE SERIES:

FILM #5: Goya
Saturday, May 25, 1pm

Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter and social commentator par excellence.

FILM #6: Van Gogh & Japan
Saturday, June 8, 1pm

After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find – the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will, and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors.
