The 100 most beautiful Rembrandts at the Teylers Museum in Haarlem

  • Print

No other Dutch artist is as well known and loved worldwide as Rembrandt. Yet it has not always been that way. In his own day, he was counted among the greatest masters, but after his death he was often reviled for his loose style and risqué subjects.

This all changed in the 19th century, and he came to be revered as the greatest artist of all time. Those changing tastes are the subject of this exhibition.

Teylers has one of the world's leading collections of Rembrandt etchings and drawings. For this occasion, Rembrandt's 100 most beautiful works will be brought out of storage. For a brief time, his famous self-portraits, moving Bible scenes, tender portraits of his wife Saskia, racy scenes and dramatic landscapes will again be on display for all to admire.

Teylers Museum is an art, natural history, and science museum in Haarlem, Netherlands. Established in 1778, Teylers Museum was originally founded as a centre for contemporary art and science. The historic centre of the museum is the neoclassical Oval Room (1784), which was built behind the house of Pieter Teyler van der Hulst (1702–1778), the so-called Fundatiehuis (Foundation House). Pieter Teyler was a wealthy cloth merchant and banker of Scottish descent, who bequeathed his fortune for the advancement of religion, art, and science.
