Rembrandt in Rotterdam

Rembrandt in Rotterdam
Drawings in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
10 December 2005 - 5 March 2006 (date with reservation)
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has a collection of 36 drawings made by Rembrandt himself. In addition, there are 160 drawings by pupils and artists from his environment, showing the artistic influence of the great master from the Golden Age. Most of the drawings are from the world-famous Koenigs Collection. The exhibition, curtain raiser for the Rembrandt year 2006 in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, is offering a rare opportunity to admire not only the complete collection of drawings by Rembrandt in Rotterdam, but also a wide selection of drawings by his contemporaries.

Prints in the Golden Age: from art to shelf paper
21 January 2006 - 19 March 2006
The Golden Age was not only the heyday of the art of painting; the art of printing also bloomed in that period: Goltzius, Buytewech, Van Ostade and Rembrandt were the masters of the Golden Age. Their etchings and engravings were as famous then as they are now. The prints featured in the exhibition at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen tell a story as yet untold: the story of the ordinary visual world with which the seventeenth-century Dutchman surrounded himself, even if money was scarce.
