|Rembrandts Head to Dulwich|
- Dealers in Dutch Masters go under the spotlight in south London
THE BUSINESS background to Rembrandt’s genius is to be the theme of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s June exhibition, it has been announced.
At issue is the contribution to Rembrandt’s art, and that of other leading Dutch painters of the 17th century, of art-dealer Hendrick Uylenburgh, under whose aegis, Rembrandt went through an explosive period of creativity, as well as marrying Uylenburgh’s cousin.
The Uylenburghs also had a London connection in the form of court painter Sir Peter Lely, who was the company’s agent in England.
Eighteen Rembrandt’s from this fruitful period are heading for Dulwich where visitors to the award-winning south London gallery will get the chance to see the exhibition before it moves to the Rembrandt House in Amsterdam in the autumn.
Rembrandt and Co: Dealing in Masterpieces, 7 June – 3 September.
