Captivating new film about Rembrandt, the artist and the man, to be presented in major U.S. movie theaters

NEW YORK, NY.- Thanks to a new film based on the critically acclaimed exhibition Rembrandt: The Late Works that debuted at the National Gallery, London, and opens at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, on February 12, U.S. audiences will be able to experience the exhibition on screen. For one night only, on February 24, the new film "Rembrandt from the National Gallery London and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam" will be presented at over 300 movie theaters across the country.The film gives viewers an opportunity to see the once-in-a-lifetime installations of Rembrandt's paintings, prints, and drawings in these two preeminent institutions and learn more about the revered Dutch artist from scholars, curators, and art historians. Given exclusive access by both museums, the film documents this extraordinary presentation and interweaves Rembrandt's life story with the preparations at both institutions.

Betsy Wieseman, Curator of Dutch and Flemish Paintings, National Gallery, and Jonathan Bikker, Curator of Research at the Rijksmuseum, among others, provide illuminating context regarding Rembrandt's life and times. Artists Richard Twose and Dolores De Sade demonstrate the master's painting and etching techniques and A.C. Grayling, professor at the New College of the Humanities, London, discusses Rembrandt's remarkable self-portraits. The film also explores the evolution of his artworks from his biblical tours de force to key masterpieces like The Night Watch (1642) to his later accomplishments such as The Jewish Bride (c. 1665-1669). Camera close-ups enable viewers to examine key works in detail. Acclaimed British actor Robert Lindsay narrates.

From the 1650s until his death, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) consciously searched for a new style and techniques that were even more expressive and profound than those of his early work. His creativity gathered new energy in the closing years of his life. Rembrandt: The Late Works examines the ideas that preoccupied the master during his final years: self-scrutiny, experimental technique, the use of light, observations of everyday life in Amsterdam, inspiration from other artists, and responses to artistic convention. This landmark exhibition is a unique opportunity to experience the passion, emotion, and innovation of Rembrandt, and film audiences can see the detail and artistry of these paintings like never before on the big screen. Rembrandt: The Late Works comprises approximately 40 paintings, 20 drawings, and 30 prints and will be on view at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, from February 12-May 17, 2015.
