This exhibition is the first ever to chart the transformative central decades of Rembrandt’s career, from his arrival in Amsterdam in the mid-1630s to the emergence of his late style in the mid-1650s. Bringing his paintings, prints and drawings into dialogue with masterpieces by friends, followers and rivals, Rembrandt in Amsterdam will immerse you in the thriving Amsterdam art market of Rembrandt’s time, revealing the exhilarating and stimulating atmosphere that inspired a young artist from Leiden to become the world-renowned artist we know today.

The exhibition is on view at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa from May 14 to September 6, 2021, prior to the presentation at the Städel Museum in the fall of 2021.
