The San Diego Museum of Art shares the extraordinary artistic accomplishment of 17th-century painters and printmakers from the Dutch Republic.

Opening this summer, the Museum features "Rembrandt and Printmaking in the Netherlands," an exhibition including approximately 20 etchings and engravings by Rembrandt. The exhibition draws from the Museum’s permanent collection, as well as loans from the important Rembrandt collection of the University of San Diego (USD).

In addition to the unique etchings by Rembrandt featured inside the exhibition, the Museum will also have on view in the Fitch Gallery a masterpiece loan from the Rijksmuseum, an extraordinary oil on canvas by Rembrandt painted around 1628 when the artist was only 21 or 22. Rembrandt was a dedicated self-portraitist and roughly 40 of his self-portraits exist today, allowing the changes in his appearance throughout the years to be read biographically.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
