The dossier exhibition commemorating the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death will draw attention to the artist as a master and teacher. Each one of the works displayed here comes from the Museum of Fine Arts’ collections of Prints and Drawings and Old Master Paintings.
The exhibition is curated by Bernadett Tóth, an art historian at the Museum of Fine Arts’ Department of Prints and Drawings.
The Department of Prints and Drawings preserves more than forty sheets from the drawing oeuvres of Rembrandt and his followers, while almost all of the master’s etchings and those by his pupils can be found in this collection.
Prints and drawings are especially light-sensitive artworks. If exposed to light too long or often, they lose their colour and become faded. UV radiation in natural light is the most damaging to these sheets; therefore, they are displayed here for a strictly limited time, placed under glass with a UV filter and illuminated with artificial light with a maximum illuminance of 50 lux. For this reason, no photography is allowed at the exhibition.
