12 February 2015, Amsterdam – King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands officially opened the Late Rembrandt exhibition at the Rijksmuseum today.
The Rijksmuseum’s Director and General Manager Wim Pijbes and Head of Visual Arts Gregor Weber accompanied King Willem-Alexander on a tour of the exhibition highlighted by masterworks including the Portrait of Jan Six (Six Collection), Self-Portrait with Two Circles (Kenwood House, London) and the Family Portrait (Herzog Anton Ulrich-museum, Braunschweig).
Late Rembrandt is the Rijksmuseum’s first ever presentation of a major exhibition dedicated to Rembrandt’s late works. The exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of Rembrandt’s output between 1651 and his death in 1669 – including over one hundred works, all of which created in Amsterdam. Complementing Rijksmuseum’s extensive collection of Rembrandt are works on loan from leading international museums and private collections, many never before shown together.
Late Rembrandt is created in collaboration with The National Gallery London, where the exhibition was held 15 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.
