Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India
March 13, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
IN AN INTRIGUING MOMENT LATE IN HIS CAREER, Rembrandt created a series of unusually meticulous drawings depicting emperors and courtiers from Mughal India. This exhibition explores the Dutch master’s careful studies of imperial Mughal portraiture and places them within a broader circuit of cross-cultural exchanges. By juxtaposing Rembrandt’s drawings with Indian paintings of similar compositions—and pairing Mughal artworks with European prints that inspired them—fascinating stories unfold about the flow of art and ideas across time and oceans.
