Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age

31 October 2014 - 15 February 2015

Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age, a large-scale exhibition to run in the Museum of Fine Arts from 31 October surveys the period of 17th-century Dutch art, one of the golden ages of European culture. The exhibition is built around Rembrandt, the greatest master of the period, by whom 20 masterpieces will be on display. The exhibition will showcase over 170 works by some 100 painters, of which 40 originate from the Museum of Fine Arts’ rich Dutch collection and 130 paintings will be contributed by private and public collections, with the most important loaning institutions including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the National Museum in Stockholm, the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery in London, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles , the Metropolitan in New York, the Uffizi in Florence and the Prado in Madrid. A further sensation of the exhibition is that in addition to the significant number of works by Rembrandt – including the painting known as his earliest and his last self-portrait – visitors can also view three works by Vermeer.

"Since 2001 I have explored the potential of colour shifting effects primarily in my painting, as well as in a historical context, examining it from the perspective of physical and optical laws and phenomena, and observing it in the collections of the great museums of Europe."

Texture 2014

Fine art – literature - theatre

21 October 2014 - 25 September 2014

10 works of fine art, 10 literary texts, 10 actors, 2 directors. The outcome: 5 scenes directed with two different approaches. The plays are intriguing as they are. Free association, dramaturgical knacks, secrets and mysteries in the spaces of the Museum of Fine Arts evocative of church interiors. With much humour and free of all pathos. All this brought under one roof, an unforgettable evening awaits visitors: sculptures and paintings seen through the eyes of writers and directors, revealing so far undiscovered, real and recontextualised meanings. One thing is certain: whoever comes to one of our evenings will never be able to look at the featured masterpieces in quite the same way again.
