Times of upheaval create a desire for orientation in the past. Accordingly, everything historical in our present economy: In the advertising, fashion and film world, the "old" as the authentic in opposition to a mass-produced unity culture in position and often transfigured nostalgic.

Art history is also making a comeback in the visual arts. While in the 1980s the artists cited traditions of the 20th century as "appropriation art", for some years now an orientation towards old masters and art historical techniques has been evident.

Artists not only copy and alienate paintings from bygone eras but also respond more freely and playfully to the "mnemic energies" (Aby Warburg) stored in ancient works. Not infrequently, they try to visualize the collective heritage through performative strategies as well as through photographic and cinematic media for the present.

Inspired by Rembrandt. 100 Years of Collecting by The Rembrandt House Museum (group show)
The Rembrandt House Museum, Amsterdam
7 June - 1 September 2019

The Rembrandt House is not just Rembrandt’s former home and workshop; for more than a century it has been a museum with its own collection. The collection consists primarily of works on paper. Rembrandt’s etchings are of course well represented, but the museum also has prints by his predecessors and contemporaries as well as by modern and contemporary artists who were inspired by Rembrandt.

This exhibition will feature the most remarkable examples from the museum’s collection. Discover the surprising selection of old and new, big and small, fine and sketchy. You will see work by such artists as Rembrandt, Hercules Segers, Edgar Degas and Pablo Picasso, and also by Horst Janssen, Willem den Ouden, Charles Donker and Glenn Brown.
