Rembrandt exhibition at the Ulster Museum

One of the most iconic pieces of European art has recently finished a stint on display at the Ulster Museum. Rembrandt at the age of 63; while being one of his most celebrated portraits, was also one of his last. I had seen this collection before in the national gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh and can honestly say that the painting has lost none of its aura in the intervening years.

The painting was on loan at the Ulster Museum from the National Gallery in London as part of the National Gallery Masterpiece tour which is going around a number of galleries and museums around the UK.

Among other portraits on display at this exhibition were portraits of other artists from the 17th century who were influenced by Rembrandt. These included Solomon Van Rysdael, Jan Symonsz Pynas, Jan van der Heyden and Nicolaes Maes.
