About this Event

To mark the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death and the Year of the Dutch Golden Age, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents Rembrandt on the big screen from 9 April 2019; back by popular demand. Filmed in exquisite detail, the camera offers a privileged view of the once-in-a-lifetime 2015 Late Works exhibition at the Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum and London’s National Gallery. 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 was a unique opportunity to experience the passion, emotion and innovation of Rembrandt. With behind-the-scenes access revealing the preparations of the show, the film reveals a fresh and fascinating full biography of this great artist. The film features interviews with the show’s curators Betsy Wieseman and Jonathan Bikker. Artist Richard Twose demonstrates Rembrandt’s painting technique whilst Dolores De Sade illustrates the revolutionary way that Rembrandt worked with printmaking, a brand new art form at the time. Philosopher AC Grayling provides a fascinating insight into the nature of ‘self’ and how this applies to Rembrandt’s self-portraits.

The film also explores the evolution of his artworks from 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.1665-1169).

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is produced by award-winning arts documentary maker Phil Grabsky and Seventh Art Productions.

Phil says; “Rembrandt is one of those artists frequently called an all-time great but to really understand the biography you need to look at the detail, to have someone explain what we're looking at and why it's significant, to really grasp why he's so revered. That is exactly what we do in these films. You might have missed this once-in-a-life exhibition when it happened in 2015, but with our film you have a second chance to explore this genius of paint on the big screen.”
