Throughout his extraordinary career, Rembrandt made emphatic efforts to craft and convey a distinctive artistic identity and ideology. Woven into many of his paintings, prints, and drawings are vivid commentaries on art itself. Framing the artist’s studio as an important space for contemporary discourse and debate, Joanna Sheers Seidenstein explores the tactics Rembrandt employed in his works—in particular his depictions of grand narrative—in order to articulate his ideas and ideals about art making.

Joanna Sheers Seidenstein, Stanley H. Durwood Foundation Curatorial Fellow, Harvard Art Museums
