Back to the beginning

Devoted to Rembrandt’s early work, this exhibition focuses on an informative period for the young master. The exhibition features work that shows how Rembrandt’s style developed over time and how his keen sense of observation was there from the start. Between 1624 and 1634 Rembrandt laid the foundation for his unique perspective and style.

This is a great chance to peer over Rembrandt’s shoulder as you ponder his early work, created almost 400 years ago in Leiden and before his move to Amsterdam. Comprising 40 paintings, 120 etchings and 20 drawings by Rembrandt, the exhibition also includes work by Jan Lievens, Pieter Lastman and Willem Isaacsz Van Swanenburg.

Organised in collaboration with the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, one of the leading museums in the United Kingdom, Young Rembrandt is a fascinating look at the master as he sets out to become a great painter and artist.
