Exhibition on Screen features 'Rembrandt'
BRATTLEBORO — Latchis Arts' Exhibition on Screen series, which features films about the world's great artists, continues with "Rembrandt" on Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14, at 4 p.m., at the Latchis Theatre.
"Rembrandt" offers a privileged view of the once-in-a-lifetime 2015 Late Works exhibition at Amsterdam's Rijksmseum and London's National Gallery. Remrandt's creativity gathered new energy in the closing years of his life. It is the art of these late years - soulful, honest and deeply moving - that indelibly defines our image of Rembrandt. With behind-the-scenes access to the preparations of the show, the film reveals a fresh and fascinating full biography of this great artist.
Directed by Kat Mansoor and produced by Phil Grabsky, the film features interviews with the show's curators Betsy Wieseman and Jonathan Bikker. Artist Richard Twose demonstrates Rembrandt's painting technique, while Delores De Sade illustrates the revolutionary way Rembrandt works with printmaking, a brand art form at the time.
The film also explores the evolution of his artworks from biblical masterpieces such as The Stoning of St. Stephen (1625) to key masterpieces like The Nightwatch (1642), through his later accomplishments such as The Jewish bride (1665-69).
Admission to "Rembrandt" is $12, $6 for students at the door. Running time is 90 minutes. For information, visit www.latchisarts.org.
