Description
For someone who, for all we know, never left his native country, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn had a strikingly broad horizon. As an artist, collector, and citizen, he came into contact with artifacts, objects of utility, and humans from all parts of the known world. Rembrandt's curiosity about everything foreign and his insatiable collector's appetite were legendary even in his lifetime and part and parcel of his singular creative genius. Amsterdam, the center of his life, was the perfect place for a man of such boundless interests: the Dutch East and West India Companies had their headquarters and home port here, as did other trading partnerships. In the seventeenth century, the city was a true cultural melting pot. Legates and merchants from far-flung places were a daily sight in the streets of the young Dutch Republic. The exhibition focuses on one of the most consequential strands in this constellation: the Orient an umbrella term for diverse Eastern non-European cultures rather than a well-defined geographic designation fired Rembrandt's imagination throughout his career. It inspired the painter has he envisioned the settings of biblical histories, one of his favorite genres. Several self-portraits show the artist in exotic costumes. His copies of miniatures created at the court of the Great Mughals were a tribute to Asian creativity and taste without precedent in Dutch art. Last but not least, he was an eager consumer of Japanese paper, which he liked to use for his etchings. Exhibition: Museum Barberini, Potsdam, Germany (27.06. - 11.10.2020) / Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland (31.10.2020 - 14.02.2021).
