Rembrandt: Britain's Discovery of the Master
  • Edinburgh Fringe

This exclusive new exhibition, which will only be shown in Edinburgh, reveals how the taste for Rembrandts work in Britain evolved over the past 400 years. From early beginnings around 1630, it grew into a mania that gripped collectors and art lovers across the country, reaching a fever pitch in the late 18th century. The exhibition also reveals the profound impact of Rembrandts art on the British imagination, by exploring the wide range of native artists whose work has been inspired by the Dutch master, over four centuries, right up to the present day.
