Course Description: Why is Rembrandt considered the greatest of the Dutch Masters? Dutch painting of the 17th century is a particular strength of the Wallace Collection, and Rembrandt’s celebrated portrait of his son Titus is one of the Collection’s best-loved pictures. The quality and breadth of Dutch paintings in the Collection offers the rewarding opportunity to study Rembrandt’s art, and its impact and significance, through close observation of his works alongside those of his students and collaborators.

In this course, you’ll gain an understanding of the development of Rembrandt’s style and subjects. We’ll consider his early years in Leiden to the height of his success in Amsterdam, and his late years of broadening brushwork and warmth of tone. Rembrandt led a busy and productive workshop, and we’ll also meet several of the artists who learned from him – from Gerrit Dou, the first apprentice to enter Rembrandt’s studio, to his last pupil, Aert de Gelder.
