Rembrandt and Degas:
Portrait of the Artist
as a Young Man
February 23, 2012 - May 20, 2012
At The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Self-portraits made by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) and Edgar Degas (1834–1917) at the start of their illustrious careers are seen side by side, for the first time, in an exhibition that highlights the Dutch master's guiding influence on the young French Impressionist and offers an intimate look at their unique kinship.
This exhibition was organized by the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, in association with the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
