Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others about Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus.

Fantastic! I was scared that fifty paintings of Jesus would be boring, but the audio guide made it incredibly interesting, especially when it comes to Rembrandt's history, the ways Jesus was portrayed prior to him, and his fascination with the Amsterdam Jews. Personal highlights for me were the Hundred Guilder Painting and the video on the printing process.

Wonderful exhibit! The Rembrandts on display are breathtaking. Being here was a real treat for me and my family. Thank you for all your hard work in making this exhibit possible.

It was cool to see all different Rembrandt paintings and prints that have been lost for many years.

A really splendid exhibit, with thoughtful audio commentary from the curators and scholars. The Christ with Arms Folded painting was the perfect way to end the show. The two heads of Christ together with the portrait of the pilgrim glowed. I also appreciated the layout, including the many tall white walls that put the paintings in stark contrast.So, how disappointing to discover such a tacky display of items in the gift shop. The Jeez-Its and Holy Toast completely contradict the contemplative message presented in the exhibit itself. Shameful and embarrassing, PMA!

Andy Wineman was fantastic. His ability to bring bring the art to life and provide some much insight was just amazing.

The attention to detail was thoughtfully expressed in his work. The way he captured people was amazing. He told a story and stimulated a feeling in his works.Amazing!

a very impressive and scholarly collection focussing so much on the subjject matter is of interest, but it tends to m treat rembrant a ea photographer and the essence of hi greatness and phenomenal uniqueness is under developed.l

We saw the exhibit on Wed. 9/7 at 3:30 pm, a rainy day. It was like a private showing because so few people were there. Enjoyed the art all the more because we could view it easily. Well done.

Why is there only a 25 pack of picture postcards available? I don't even know 25 people. I took a handful of the show brochure with the postcard-sized photo of Rembrandt's Jesus, put one each in envelopes, and mailed them. There should bebeen single postcards for sale.

Eye-opening information provided on the large wall panels. Take the time to read about the ancient history of depicting Jesus and how Rembrandt changed so much. Amazing!

I definitely liked the more humanistic paintings of Christ that Rembrandt portrayed. Many of the works that may have been done by students were excellent also. One painitng of the head of an older man with thick clumps of white hair and beard was done in such as way as to appear almost three dimensional: I thought the hair was sticking out .
I loved the items in the gift shop, especially the ones supposed to be from Amsterdam!

I am so proud of the Art Museum for sponsoring this exhibit about Christ. It is a beautiful witness to the faith of the artist.

why not a show featuring only art involving the devil or devils throughout history? call it "evil through the ages" - how we view the devil in art. sin sells.
