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 is the second conversation in the series, with the first conversation covering 'Rembrandt's Amsterdam'. In the second part of this series, we will delve deeper into Rembrandt's troubled life. Rembrandt was very quickly recognized as an unmistakably great artist; and yet, his relationships with his peers and clients weren't always easy. While in his earlier life, Rembrandt had his masterpiece paintings adorning the living rooms of the most influential citizens of Amsterdam, later in his life matters took a darker turn.

Rembrandt fell out of fame, his commissions were canceled and he declared bankruptcy. At the end (spoiler alert), Rembrandt died alone in a slum neighborhood of Amsterdam. How did this happen? Join Eve in this Context Conversation to find out more.

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