Presented by Jim Kohn from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Artworks from the seventeenth century will be explored, shedding light on a fascinating roster of artistic personalities. A generous selection of etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn—arguably his generation’s most influential artist—will be scrutinized. Rembrandt’s predecessors and his impact on followers both in Holland and internationally will be discussed.
This era focused on representations of artists and their world, portraiture, natural history, scenes of daily life, landscapes, and subjects drawn from mythology and religion.
