Here. Black in Rembrandt's Time

Due to the current coronavirus crisis, this exhibition will be closed through to and including Monday 1 June 2020. In the 1600s, a number of artists were keen to capture all aspects of the visual world, from the impact of the transatlantic slave trade through to a small community of black people who lived in Amsterdam’s Jodenbreestraat. This exhibition looks at the work of Rembrandt and his contemporaries, and how they depicted the city’s diverse cultural population, not as minor players but as central subjects.
