About Young Rembrandt at the Ashmolean

This major exhibition will explore the first ten years of the career of the most famous of all Dutch artists, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669).

Witness the meteoric rise of Rembrandt, from his first tentative works as a teenager in his home town of Leiden, to the sublime masterpieces he produced in Amsterdam ten years later.

Beginning with his earliest known paintings, prints and drawings, made in his native Leiden in the mid-1620s, and ending at the moment he rockets to stardom in Amsterdam in the mid-1630s, this exhibition will chart an astonishing transformation.

This is the largest collection of works devoted to the young Rembrandt and includes over 30 of his paintings, and 90 drawings and prints from international and private collections.

Don’t miss this unprecedented opportunity to examine young Rembrandt’s work and observe his remarkable metamorphosis from insecure teenager to the greatest Dutch painter of all time.
