Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum has opened its first ever major exhibition dedicated to Rembrandt’s late works. Running through May 17, Late Rembrandt provides a comprehensive overview of Rembrandt’s output between 1651 and his death in 1669 — including more than 100 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. The exhibition is divided into ten themes: The late self-portraits, Observation of everyday life, Artistic rivalry, Artistic conventions, Experimental technique, Light, Intimacy, Contemplation, Inner conflict and Reconciliation.
