“This brilliant, brave blockbuster reveals the true Rembrandt“ – Guardian
“He is a man demonstrating the range of his techniques… and a sheer humanity that will captivate the public” – Independent
Back by popular demand, this Exhibition on Screen favourite makes a welcome return to the big screen marking 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.
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 – exploring many of the exhibition’s key works through contributions from specially invited guests including curators and leading art historians – whilst interweaving Rembrandt’s life story, with behind-the-scenes preparations at these world famous institutions.
