In EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: Rembrandt from the National Gallery London and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the camera offers a private view of the Late Works exhibition currently at the National Gallery and a behind-the-scenes tour of the galleries as they prepare to open the exhibition.
Rembrandt’s creativity gathered new energy in the closing years of his life. It is the art of these late years — soulful, honest and deeply moving — that indelibly defines our image of Rembrandt the man and the artist. This landmark exhibition is a unique opportunity to experience the passion, emotion, and innovation of Rembrandt.
The film features interviews with the show’s curator Betsy Wieseman and Jonathan Bikker, Curator of Research at the Rijksmuseum. Artist Richard Twose will demonstrate Rembrandt’s painting technique whilst Dolores De Sade will show the revolutionary way that Rembrandt worked with the printmaking, a brand new art form at the time.
Philosopher AC Grayling will provide insight into Rembrandt’s self-portraits. The film also explores the evolution of his artworks from his biblical masterpieces such as The Stoning of St Stephen (1625) to key masterpieces like The Nightwatch (1642) through to his later accomplishments such as The Jewish Bride (c.1665 – 1669).
Acclaimed British stage and screen actor Robert Lindsay BAFTA, Olivier and Tony Award winner narrates.
