The Rijksmuseum presented the first major retrospective of the later work of Rembrandt: the final years. In cooperation with The National Gallery in London, a comprehensive overview of the later works of Rembrandt van Rijn was exhibited from between around 1652 and his death in 1669. This one-off event took place from 12 February to 17 May and provided every generation the chance to become reacquainted with the great master from the Golden Age. The works of Rembrandt can be recognised by the free style and generally have a moving or profound theme. The master also experimented with paper, tone and various printing techniques. Using unusual techniques, Rembrandt's etchings, paintings and drawings later on became a true source of inspiration for many painters and artists. You can of course also visit the Rijksmuseum to view other interesting works by Dutch painters, such as Johannes Vermeer and Jan Steen.
