A remarkable exhibition "Rembrandt. The master opens in the UK" combines well-known works of the legendary Dutch painter with works by British artists such as William Hogarth, Joshua Reynolds, Henry Raeburn, David Wilkie, Jacob Epstein, John Bellany and Frank Auerbach. This exclusive exhibition, which is presented only in Edinburgh, shows how for 400 years has developed interest in the work of Rembrandt in Britain.
Since the beginning of 1630 years this fascination turned into an obsession that gripped collectors and art lovers across the country and reached its peak in the late XVIII century. The exhibition also demonstrates the powerful influence of Rembrandt on British artists for four centuries – until the present day.
Key Rembrandts has provided British collections such as the national gallery in London, art gallery Dalija Art gallery Walker (Liverpool) and the national gallery of Ireland, and foreign institutions – the national gallery of art, Washington and Museum of fine arts, Boston. In addition to 16 works with oil viewers presents 13 paintings and 20 engravings, including the famous "Leaf on a hundred", "Three trees" and "Portrait of Jan six's".
