It's always a treat to see one of Rembrandt's pen and ink/drypoint works in any context. Getting to see such a beautiful, varied collection in one place was wonderful! Great exhibition!

the narrative is great but what has happened to any discussion pointing to the formal aspects of work - or the connection between the video and the prints themselves? hence - my first question.

It was interesting and the audio tour was good, but it was a little long for my liking. My favorite part was the how-to movie.

Thank you for bringing this story to us.The journey of the artist was apparent.The humanization of Jesus was clearly shown and reminded me of my meeting at emmaus.

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. Revelation 1,13-15

The amount of detail that went into the creation of these prints is amazing!! I am really impressed with Rembrandt's ability to tell bible stories. I am just wondering why there were no happier/smiling depictions of Jesus. For a man to attack thousands of people i would imagine that he must be more personable than what was depicted.

It almost feels like he had held back on some of his depictions. He was known as a contravertial artist how had been somewhat reeled in by his financial obligations. I find it hard to believe a thirty three year old man traveling in the desert for three years with minimal shelter and doing the large majirity of preaching in the outdoors would apear to be so pale. People need to realize Jesus propably look more like an indiganous egyptian farmer then Charleton Heaston

i remember reading about these stories in the bible and these portraits resemble exactly how the stories are told. Must see!
