An Exhibition on Screen documentary film, Rembrandt will be shown on September 12 at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington. This screening is co-sponsored with the Washington Art Association & Gallery.
Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated but this major show hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum was an event like no other. Given privileged access to both galleries the film documents this landmark exhibition, whilst interweaving Rembrandt’s life story, with behind-the-scenes preparations at these world famous institutions. Exploring many of the exhibition’s key works, through contributions from specially invited guests including curators and leading art historians, this Exhibition on Screen documentary marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death. For many, Rembrandt is the greatest artist that ever lived and this deeply moving film seeks to explore the truth about the man behind the legend. Directed by Phil Grabsky. 1h 30 minutes.
