Please note that this event has been rescheduled to Friday, May 6.

From quick sketches of figures and faces to Dutch landscapes to biblical scenes, Rembrandt animated his renderings of a now-lost world. George Abrams, a distinguished collector of Dutch drawings, will share insights and observations about his favorite works by Rembrandt in his own collection and those at the Harvard Art Museums. He will also introduce prominent followers and students of the great Dutch artist, whose identities are coming to light thanks to ongoing research.

Led by:
George Abrams, Harvard College ’54, Harvard Law ’57, collector

Joachim Homann, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Division of European and American Art
