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.

The exhibit was moving and enlightening. The pictures were nicely arranged to show Rembrandt's progression and courage in his depiction of Jesus. The museum staff were extraordinary in their efforts to facilitate the visit. They made every effort to make sure the visitor saw all the work and used the facilities as best as possible. I have never seen such devoted employees in my life in a museum. Thanks to them, my appreciation for Rembrandt and for this museum has risen a hundredfold.

All the while I kept coming back to the idea that Rembrandt must have been a holy man who spent much time in prayer and meditation.

Great show a little small but worth every cent. Get up close to the master and see his brushwork, unbelievable!

This exhibit was wonderful and interesting, and helped me realize I prefer Rembrandt's Jesus to ones following 'canonical' designs of him. Even as an Episcopalian on the brink of agnosticism, I enjoyed it. And I've been inspired to attempt etching.

AS I HAVE VISITED THE MIDDLE EAST AND ISRAEL QUITE OFTEN, I RARELY SAW ANYONE WITH SIMILAR FEATURES IN THIS EXHIBT IN THAT REGION. I HAVE SEEN REMBRANDT'S RENDITION OF JESUS IN EASTER EUROPE.

WELL DONE, INTERESTING DISPLAY OF THE GROWTH OF REMBRANDT'S VISION OF CHRIST AND A REFRESHING LOOK AT A MORE REALISTIC PORTRAYAL OF THE MAN.

the beautiful depictions of christ where amazing to look at. rembrandt really brought to life a character in history that had always seemed so inhuman.

What an enlightening and inspiring exhibition! My previous exposure to Rembrandt and his works was very limited, and I had no idea that he was such an incredibly gifted printmaker! As a student of religion as history, I was particularly impressed with the manner in which he chose to break with convention and depict Jesus as the man he was...born a Jew, lived as a Jew and died as a Jew.Thank you for bringing such an excellent exhibition to the people of Philadelphia and the world.

Art worth seeing and appreciating for its execution. The fascination, or more likely the obsession R had in recreating that lost to antiquity is in the end a trivial one.
