Visual Art Lecture with Thomas Germano: REMBRANDT'S ABRAHAM IN PAINTINGS, PRINTS AND DRAWINGS
Wednesday June 21, 2017
Rembrandt’s "Divine Encounter: Abraham and the Angels, will be presented by the Frick Collection from May 30, 2017 - August 20, 2017. Curated around one small Rembrandt painting of 1646, and lent from a private collection, Abraham and the Angels has been exhibited only a handful of times and the painting will appear alongside other depictions by Rembrandt of the Old Testament figure Abraham. A selection of prints and drawings will offer a rare opportunity to examine the artist’s engagement with the Abraham narrative. Professor Thomas Germano will discuss the exhibition and related narrative themes in Rembrandt that deal with divine intervention, sacrifice, fatherhood, revelation and prophecy.
