Works on Paper Highlights Talk:
2019–The Year of Rembrandt

Wednesday

August 14, 2019

1:00 PM-1:30 PM

Manton Study Center for Works on Paper

With an extensive collection of Rembrandt’s works on paper, the Clark is well positioned to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the death of the Dutch master. Join curator Anne Leonard in a close look at examples that foreground his revered technique and penetrating psychology. Acknowledging Rembrandt’s legacy for later European art, this talk will also examine imitations and copies after his work, with an eye to how to tell the difference.

Visit the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, which houses the Clark's collection of more than 6,500 prints, drawings, and photographs. Each week, discover a unique selection of rarely exhibited works on paper with a member of the curatorial department. Offered Wednesdays from 1–1:30 pm during July and August.
