Visit Amsterdam, the home of Rembrandt, for a new exhibition

A window into Amsterdam’s soul

If you’ve been cursing yourself for missing the blockbuster Rembrandt exhibition during its recent stint at London’s National Gallery, fear not – fans of the Dutch master now have a second chance to see his later work, and in the very city where it was created: Amsterdam. Late Rembrandt explores the artist’s output between 1652 and his death in 1669. Despite personal tragedy and a fall from favour that led to bankruptcy, during his last two decades Rembrandt van Rijn produced some of his most affecting work. More than 90 paintings, sketches and prints are gathered here, and particularly touching are his moody self-portraits; catch one at a quiet moment and it’s like coming face to face with the man himself. As the exhibition takes place in the recently and gloriously restored Rijksmuseum, visitors will also be able to take in his most famous work, The Night Watch: a confident group portrait which takes pride of place in the gallery. To coincide with the exhibition, there will be both a walking tour and boat trip, taking in landmarks where Rembrandt lived and worked, including the Rembrandt House Museum. Retrace his steps along canals and cobbled streets, watching life unfold, as he once did.
