This mini webinar series is dedicated to the life and work of the great Dutch artist, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-69). We have all heard the name before, and now is our chance to learn more about Rembrandt’s personality, most famous paintings and dark secrets.

This conversation (volume 1) will cover Rembrandt’s Amsterdam. Rembrandt moved to Amsterdam in his twenties and his house is now a museum. Most of Rembrandt’s activities form a radius of 600 metres around this location. We will have a look at the house’s interiors and, starting from there, we will follow in Rembrandt’s footsteps and trace his activities through the streets of Amsterdam. We will talk about Rembrandt’s most famous commissions including The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolas Tulp (1932) and The Night Watch (1642), see the buildings where such important paintings used to hang, and find out more about Rembrandt’s places of inspiration. This is a chance to learn more about the life and work of Rembrandt as well as about the hidden gems of Amsterdam.

This conversation is the first in a two-part series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.
