Rembrandt and His Pupils

Drawings and Etchings from the Collections of the Museum of Fine Arts
Budapest, Szépművészeti Múzeum, 20 September 2019 - 05 January 2020
Commemorating the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, the exhibition draws attention to the artist as a master and teacher. The Department of Prints and Drawings preserves more than forty sheets from the drawing oeuvres of Rembrandt and his followers, plus almost all of the master’s etchings can be found in this collection.
In line with international trends, which place the stylistic distinctions between the master’s pupils at the focus of research, the present exhibition seeks to show Rembrandt’s drawings and etchings in the environment of his pupils’ works as a tribute to the 350th anniversary. The displayed material is arranged according to the areas of drawing education – portrait, nude, landscape, figure sketch and narrative compositions–and allows an insight into Rembrandt’s activity as a teacher and into the operation of his workshop. Sheets by Ferdinand Bol, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout, Samuel van Hoogstraten and others preserved in the Budapest collection are exhibited alongside the drawings and etchings in the master’s own hand, thus providing a unique opportunity for discovering parallels and in some cases exciting differences.
