The exhibition brings together paintings and drawings by the Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn, spanning different periods of his artistic path. The pieces on view range from the youthful and experimental works of his journey to Leiden to the later ones created in Amsterdam. Besides them, on show also works by his contemporary rivals and peers, including Johannes Vermeer, Jan Lievens, Ferdinand Bol, Carel Fabritius, Gerrit Dou, Frans van Mieris and Frans Hals, which explore the mutual influences they had on each other.
