Rembrandt in the Gothenburg Museum of Art's Collection
Rembrandt in the Gothenburg Museum of Art's Collection
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606–1669) is one of the foremost Baroque Masters, a legendary artist, famous for his vibrant chiaroscuro paintings. Many of his works seem to glow from within, creating a mysterious atmosphere that emphasizes the drama that Rembrandt sets in motion. Rembrandt is also an unparalleled interpreter of complex emotions and human expressions. His biblical and historical motifs, as well as his portraits and self-portraits, express grandiose, dramatic and violent sentiments, but also compassion, tenderness and soul-searching. During his life, he completed around 350 paintings, 300 etchings and over 1 000 drawings.

From May 31 2017 the Gothenburg Museum of Art can show one of the Dutch 17th century master’s most important works, “The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis”, from 1661–1662, thanks to a loan from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. The two by three meter painting has been displayed outside of Stockholm only on two earlier occasions. Since 2015 it has been on loan to the National Gallery in London and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. When the work now returns to Sweden, it will be shown in Gothenburg for the first time.

In addition to “The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis”, you will also find paintings and prints by Rembrandt, his pupils and contemporaries from the Dutch Golden Age, from the collection of the Gothenburg Museum of Art.

This web exhibition presents all artworks by Rembrandt in the collection of the Gothenburg Museum of Art.
