Rembrandt in the Twilight

Visitors to this unusual exhibition enter darkened rooms to see small prints made by Rembrandt himself. The lights are dimmed because the prints cannot be displayed in bright light. This unusual setting is inside the old building of the National Museum in Poznań. The exhibition features 200 works by Rembrandt, including original prints, copies made by Rembrandt and those made after his death.

The exhibition is the result of several years of research undertaken by the National Museum in Poznań. It takes its theme from a small etching entitled An Old Beggar Woman with a Gourd which Rembrandt made around 1629. Its sophisticated, gray background, quality paper and deep shades are evidence that the print is the work of the master himself. A huge copy of the print has been made specially for the exhibition.

D.P.

National Museum in Poznań, 9 Karola Marcinkowskiego Ave., open through June 7.
