Rembrandt van Rijn: Context, Convention, and Controversy
Thursday, October 3rd, 2019
by Megan Euell
7:00-8:30 pm at Atelier Hall
with a music and social hour to follow
The Atelier at Flowerfield is hosting Andrew Washton, lifelong historian and rare art manuscript and catalog dealer for an art lecture on Rembrandt Van Rijn on Thursday, November 14th, from 7-8:30 p.m. The lecture will be preceded by a musical and social hour from 6:30-7 p.m. in the Atelier Fine Art Library, which houses 10,000 volumes of rare books donated by Andrew Washton to The Atelier. Guests are also invited to attend a reception afterwards for a live cello performance by local classical cellist James Acampora.
This lecture is an unconventional discussion of Rembrandt's life and some of Rembrandt's paintings, chiefly some of his portraits. In what context were they created? Did Rembrandt always "go his own way" stylistically? Were his compositions conventional or original? And finally, what happened to Rembrandt's pet monkey?
This event is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $10.00 to support out scholarship fund for students in need.
Refreshments will be served.
