Study Day: “Rembrandt: Thinking on Paper” (London, 24 Jun 2019)

In conjunction with the exhibition "Rembrandt: Thinking on Paper" at the British Museum (Gallery 90, February 7–August 4, 2019), this study day at the Warburg Institute is an in-depth exploration and re-evaluation of Rembrandt’s graphic oeuvre, intended for graduate students, post-graduate researchers, curators, and museum professionals. The morning program comprises six lectures pertaining to questions of production, collecting, reception, cataloging and connoisseurship of Rembrandt’s prints and drawings.

About the Exhibition
The exhibition reveals the immediacy and personal nature of his prints and drawings which, unlike his paintings, were usually made on his own initiative. Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) is among the best-loved artists in the world. The British Museum has one of the greatest collections of Rembrandt’s works on paper and a selection of these treasures is being exhibited to mark this milestone anniversary. Thematic displays of self-portraits, landscapes, portraits and biblical scenes showcase his artistic development and working methods, while chronological comparisons reveal how he tirelessly pushed boundaries. Comprising 65 prints and drawings, this stunning exhibition will highlight Rembrandt’s technical and creative ingenuity on paper.
