« Rembrandt-Velázquez », the meeting of the great Dutch and Spanish painters at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
As the result of a special partnership between the Rijksmuseum and the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, the Rijksmuseum welcomes the exhibition “Rembrandt-Velázquez. Dutch & Spanish Masters”.
For this exceptional confrontation of 60 paintings by the greatest Dutch and Spanish painters of the 17th century, spread over 8 rooms, W&A has imagined an original scenography in which the paintings are hanging alongside each other in pairs to create a stimulating and surprising dialogue. The repetition of a shallow module with high-rise concave wall enfolds the works and attracts the look. They form an intimist setting for an immersive experience.
This exhibition is to be discovered from October 11, 2019 to January 19, 2020.
