RAUW, Museum Rembrandthuis

Picturing the human body as it really is – that is not as obvious as it might seem. For centuries we have idealized our own and other people’s appearance. In the seventeenth century they idealized the way people looked in works of art. Rembrandt, however, did not. He looked at others – and himself – with an open and curious gaze, and often depicted people with the utmost realism. In the group show RAW, Rembrandt’s etchings introduce the work of thirteen contemporary artists.
