The current blockbuster exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago features paintings and prints by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), "one of the most celebrated artists in history." This related website presents just enough of the exhibition to satisfy some, while whetting the appetite of others -- who will need to travel to the museum to see more than 200 works on display. To see works in context, start at the Exhibition Themes page, where short paragraphs describe major themes in Rembrandt's work, such as Scenes from Everyday Life, 1635-51, and also link to examples from each category. Visit the Selected works page for thumbnail views of all the Rembrandts available at the website. The site also includes all the necessary information for those who wish to purchase tickets and visit the Art Institute.
