Rembrandt is dead. He died in 1669, 350 years ago. An occasion for the Netherlands to declare 2019 a Rembrandt Year. Many museums and cultural institutions in the Netherlands honour the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn with special exhibitions in 2019.
And Kukullus joins in: With the Rembrandt walking city tour in Amsterdam, we follow the footsteps of the master painter in this city that is so closely connected to the ups and downs in Rembrandt’s life and work.
Kukullus’ Rembrandt-tour in the Rijksmuseum is dedicated to selected works by Rembrandt and sheds light on Rembrandt’s creative work during quite some decades.
Rembrandt in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam organizes a show of (almost) all of his work in the museum’s collection: From February 15th to June 10th 2019, 22 paintings, 60 drawings and no less than 300 prints will be presented. Some of the master’s works are always kept in the depot, usually, especially (because of their fragility) Rembrandt’s art works on paper. But in 2019 it is time to live it up. Even with 1000 of his etchinigs still missing in the exhibition, as it would simply be too much to show all of Rembrandt’s immense graphic oeuvre.
