Rembrandt. Jewish view Automatic translate
Curators: Gary Schwartz, Miriam Knotter, Leah Chechik.
The central project in autumn 2022 will be an exhibition dedicated to the work of the famous Dutch artist in the context of his relationship with the Jewish environment and tradition. Having moved to Amsterdam in 1631, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn got the opportunity to observe the customs and way of life of the Jews that existed in the capital of the United Provinces of the Netherlands in an atmosphere of certain tolerance and autonomy - a rare case for Europe in those years.
The exposition will present the artist’s work in a consistently changing historical and cultural context: visitors will see how the themes of Rembrandt’s works were perceived in the Jewish environment of the 17th-18th centuries. and what significance later, starting from the 19th century, the work of Rembrandt had for artists of Jewish origin, including Mauricius Gottlieb, Chaim Soutine, Marc Chagall, David Bomberg, Frank Auerbach and many others, as he was revered by Jews - art collectors and art dealers. The curators of the project were: one of the largest experts in the work of Rembrandt - Gary Schwartz and the chief curator of the Jewish Museum of Amsterdam Miriam Knottter.
The exhibition will feature works from the collections of the State Hermitage, the National Gallery in London, the Stedelik Museum in Amsterdam, the Israel Museum and many other museums and private collections. To create the project, a board of trustees was assembled, headed by Mikhail Borisovich Piotrovsky, as well as an academic council that brought together world experts on the work of Rembrandt.
