Rembrandt Beyond the Brush

TheDescent from the Cross by Torchlight

October 27 – December 13, 2014

IDEA Space

 Closed November 19 – 23 and November 26 – 30.

 

Rembrandt Van Rijn’s fame as a painter was exceeded in his own lifetime by his renown as a master etcher. In an age and a culture dominated by the intellect, Rembrandt’s patrons treasured his ability to communicate the profoundly spiritual beauty of the earthbound and the tangible. He is greatly esteemed today for his sensitivity to the psychology of the common man. This deeply felt empathy is embodied in the thirty-five etchings that comprise this exhibition from the permanent collection of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Through a range of subjects—self-portraits, landscapes, depictions of Biblical stories and everyday life—Rembrandt captured the essence of mankind’s sense of the spiritual and personal, all portrayed within the context of the dynamic, contemporary society of seventeenth-century Holland.

Art of the Dutch Republic, taught by Rebecca Tucker Associate Professor in the Colorado College Art History Department, focuses on the Golden Age of Holland—a time of economic, cultural, and political growth. During this time, artists developed innovative styles and visual modes to depict life in the early modern era.

Throughout Art of the Dutch Republic students have spent many hours in I.D.E.A. Space examining and interpreting 35 Rembrandt images based on research.

The students have made their classroom experience practical by writing new interpretive text for the I.D.E.A. Space exhibition Rembrandt Beyond the Brush. The students will present their research and answer questions about specific works and genres within the exhibition at Tuesday’s event.

Student Presenters and Topics:

Thomas Euyang – Rembrandt’s Old Testament Scenes
Fiona Graham – Rembrandt’s Self Portraits
Bennett Krishock – Portraits by Rembrandt
Madelyn Santa – Street Scenes in Rembrandt’s Prints
