The exhibition 'Late Rembrandt' will open on February 12 (until May 17, 2015). The exhibition shows works by Rembrandt from the last period of his life.
This year, the Rijksmuseum will be presenting the first major retrospective of the later work of Rembrandt van Rijn. Over 100 works from leading museums and private collections from around the world will be on display here in Amsterdam.
The exhibition covers approximately the last 20 years of Rembrandt's life, in which he is regarded to be have produced his best work. Late Rembrandt is very complete with this exhibition; a large number of loans from other museums in the world make this a unique opportunity to learn to know Rembrandt.
The Lucretia (National Gallery of Art, Washington) is here together with the Lucretia from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. And the Titus from the Rijksmuseum itself is reunited with the Titus from the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam). Titus was Rembrandt's son, who died in this period of Rembrandt's life.
And there are various other masterworks from all over the world.
To visit the exhibition, an extra fee of E 7.50 on top of the normal ticket price applies. More details can be found on https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/late-rembrandt.
