Rembrandt Show for London National Gallery in 2014
London, 11 July – An exhibition examining Rembrandt’s later works is set to open at the National Gallery in London next year.
Rembrandt: The Final Years will feature around 40 paintings, 20 drawings and 30 prints by the Dutch master.
In collaboration with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the exhibition will also include key works on loan from other European and American museums.
The show will run in London from 15 October 2014 to 18 January 2015 and in Amsterdam from February 2015.
The gallery said the exhibition would highlight the “inspired unprecedented creativity” of the artist’s later years.
“Soulful, honest and deeply moving, in many ways it is the art of these late years that indelibly defines our image of Rembrandt the man and the artist,” it said.
Betsy Wieseman, the gallery’s curator of Dutch and Flemish paintings, said: “As a mature artist he felt himself less bound by conventions and more willing to take artistic and iconographic risks – to venture into areas that other artists weren’t willing to go.”
The Rembrandt exhibition is one of five new shows planned for the National Gallery for 2014.

The Simon Schama prog (above) is fantastic – as are the other episodes in the series. But what an artist was Rembrandt.
In two days’ time, there wil be a Rembrandt celebration. I will blog about it 🙂
