Rembrandt's Great Challenge: Visualizing Jesus

Sunday, January 08, 2012

2:00 PM

  • For Everyone
Rembrandt pursued a lifelong search for an image of Jesus. The Dutch artist drew upon such famous predecessors as Albrecht Dürer for his interpretations, but his profoundly moving figures of Jesus are singular in the history of Western art. Shelley Perlove investigates the artist's paintings and prints of biblical narratives to reveal Rembrandt's distinctive approach to the life of the Christian savior as a Jew.
