Join Catherine Stevenson as she tells us about Rembrandt

About this event

Catherine Stevenson, Chair of Newcastle u3a, will explore relevant references to the historical background of his life and works, as well as talking about Volunteers' Week.

Rembrandt and Third Age Matters

Get ready for Rembrandt and his perception of third age goings-on. Exploring some of his self-portraits, we’ll trace some of his fascination with the third age. His amazing observations of other third agers give us deeper insights into his use of psychology and humour to arrive at a bigger picture of what third age meant to him, then ask ourselves, ‘Would he have been an amazing asset to the u3a’s portrayal of third agers?’
