Rembrandt infused his etchings of biblical subjects with an intense inwardness. He was a master at transporting these religious scenes to his particular time and place, the Calvinist Netherlands of the seventeenth century, while at the same time drawing inspiration from pictorial traditions and the Bible’s rich, detailed text. Rembrandt sought to capture and depict the essence of the biblical events. 
His orchestration of light and dark and the powerful interactions of his figures, whose facial expressions and gestures convey great presence, are what makes these images oscillate, to this day, between strange and familiar.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a trilingual publication (German, Dutch, English).
