Rembrandt in London

Written by  Melina T.

Rembrandt, the Dutch 17th century painter and etcher, has left us a remarkable body of work; an exhibition of his late masterpieces loaned from across international collections is on display at London's National Gallery until the 18th of January. The subjects of his portraits are caught at surprisingly intimate moments – these works have none of the formality and poise of Rembrandt's contemporaries. No distant looks into the horizon, Rembrandt's subjects are characters with a lively, telling gaze, often directly engaging with the onlooking spectator. This is a moving and thought-provoking collection, well worth catching before it closes in January.

Rembrandt's Late Works is on at the National Gallery in London from 15 Oct 2014 to 18 Jan 2015.
