Jennifer Scott, the Sackler Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery, will reveal the research and concept behind her forthcoming exhibition Rembrandt's Light marking the 350th anniversary of the death of Rembrandt. The exhibition (2 October 2019 – 2 February 2020) focuses on the 19 years when the great Dutch master lived in his ‘dream house’ on the Breestraat in Amsterdam. Through paintings, etchings and drawings she will explore the ideal conditions for creating art, and the ideal conditions for viewing within the world’s oldest purpose-built public art gallery.

This is one of a series of six talks which explore Dutch and Flemish art, from Jan van Eyck to Johannes Vermeer; you may also like to consider:
