Rembrandt in Amsterdam: Creativity and Competition
06.10. - 30.01.2022 at the Staedel Museum Frankfurt
In a major exhibition, the Städel Museum, together with the National Gallery of Canada, will for the first time address Rembrandt’s rise to international fame during his formative years in Amsterdam, between 1630 and 1655.
The presentation combines the Städel’s collection of works by Rembrandt with outstanding loans from international collections, such as the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden, the National Gallery in London, the Museo del Prado in Madrid, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606–1669) is world famous to this day as a painter of exceptional portraits and history paintings. Yet there was another subject that also preoccupied him throughout his career: landscape. The Dutch painter addressed himself to this theme not so much in painting, but all the more intensively in drawing and printmaking.
