Rembrandt in Zagreb
Today I visited the exhibition of Rembrandt's graphics
that opened at the Zagreb Museum for Arts and Crafts.
Around 200 etchings by famous Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), 103 of which come from the Graz Alte Galerie LMJ collection, are on exhibit.
Because of their sensitivity to light, the graphics are rarely exhibited, and, when they are, for no more than three months.
The exhibition’s curator is Karin Leitner-Ruhe, who works at Alte Galerie.
Rembrandt is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art history and the most important in Dutch history.
The exhibit lasts until February 15.
