"Rembrandt Creates Rembrandt: Art and Ambition in Leiden, 1629-1631"
2000-09-23 until 2001-01-07
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Boston, MA, USA United States of America

Ten paintings, including the Gardner's early Self Portrait, and ten etchings from collections in the United States and Europe will illuminate Rembrandt's evolving painting and etching styles as well as his self identity as he sought to place himself at the forefront of the artistic scene in the Netherlands and beyond between 1629 and 1631. The exhibition will reevaluate the young Rembrandt in context of the artistic, economic, intellectual, and cultural influences of the time, as well as explore the innovative painting and etching techniques he used during this period.

September 23, 2000-January 7, 2001 'Rembrandt Creates Rembrandt: Art and Ambition in Leiden, 1629-1631' Ten paintings, including the Gardner's early Self Portrait, and ten etchings from collections in the United States and Europe will illuminate Rembrandt's evolving painting and etching styles as well as his self identity as he sought to place himself at the forefront of the artistic scene in the Netherlands and beyond between 1629 and 1631. The exhibition will reevaluate the young Rembrandt in context of the artistic, economic, intellectual, and cultural influences of the time, as well as explore the innovative painting and etching techniques he used during this period. The exhibition catalogue will make a major contribution to scholarship on Rembrandt. It includes contributions by Arthur Wheelock, curator at the National Gallery of Art, Christopher White, the renowned Rembrandt scholar and former director of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, MariŽt Westermann, professor at Rutgers University, Alan Chong, and Hilliard Goldfarb, curator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and former curator at the Gardner Museum, who conceived of the exhibition.

The Gardner offers this exploration of Rembrandt's work as part of a commitment to scholarship and the exploration of new ways of looking at Rembrandt. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Museum will offer several lectures and a scholarly symposium that will examine more closely aspects of Rembrandt's art. On October 14, the Museum will host Rethinking Rembrandt, a scholarly symposium. Alan Chong will give an Eye of the Beholder lecture entitled, Rembrandt, Cinematographer on Thursday, November 30, at 6:30 p.m.
