Courthouse Street LS21 3AN
FROM THE NATIONAL GALLERY, LONDON AND RIJKSMUSEUM, AMSTERDAM
Directed by Kat Mansoor
Running time: 90 minutes
Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated but this major show hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum was an event like no other. Given privileged access to both galleries, the film documents this landmark exhibition, whilst interweaving Rembrandt’s life story with behind-the-scenes preparations at these world famous institutions. It explores many of the exhibition’s key works, bringing in contributions from specially invited guests including curators and leading art historians. For many, Rembrandt is the greatest artist that ever lived and this deeply moving film seeks to explore the truth about the man behind the legend.
Otley Courthouse Bar opens 45 minutes before the event start time.
