Film explores Rembrandt’s late-in-life genius

MIDDLEBURY — Town Hall Theater’s Great Art Wednesdays screenings return this Wednesday, kicking off at 11 a.m. with a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, “Rembrandt: from the National Gallery, London and Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam” ? the first ever in-depth exploration of Rembrandt’s final years of painting.
Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated, but this major new show hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum was an event like no other. Given exclusive, privileged access to both galleries, the film documents this landmark exhibition whilst interweaving Rembrandt’s life story with behind-the-scenes preparations at these world famous institutions.
The exhibition focuses on the highlights from the final years of Rembrandt’s life, commonly thought to be his finest years. The masterpieces he produced during this period could be called his defining works, with each piece so soulful and honest that they helped sculpt our idea of Rembrandt as a man and as an artist.
“This brilliant, brave blockbuster reveals the true Rembrandt .”
