Rembrandt: The Late Works is a landmark exhibition of paintings, drawings and etchings of the 17th century Dutch master on view at the National Gallery, London, until 18 January 2015.
There are some great works in the exhibition, including the two remarkable self-portraits I recently highlighted here and here, along with other masterpieces.
Among the prints and drawings the deceptively simply drawing of a woman sleeping (above, bottom, with detail) which — in its blend of European and Asian sensibilities, keen draftsmanship and calligraphic brushwork, simplicity and elegance — I have long thought to be one of the most beautiful drawings in the history of art.
The National Gallery website has a short feature about the exhibition, but not much in the way of associated image galleries. I’ve tried to provide resources below for the images I’ve featured here.
