Co-presented by TASCHEN and Asia Art Hong Kong, Mr. Duncan Bull, curator of Rijksmuseum will share the magnificent 350 years of unparalleled legacy of Rembrandt to the art lovers in Hong Kong.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is not only the Netherlands’ national museum of history, art and civilisation, but in a very real sense the museum of Rembrandt van Rijn. Rembrandt’s magnificent group portrait of members of a civic guard, known as The Night Watch, is not only the focal point of the museum, which was literally designed around it, but has also become the domiinant icon of Dutch culture. As the most brilliant, the most thoughtful, the most penetratingly empathetic and most intensely emotional of the painters of the Golden Age, Rembrandt mastered every genre of the art in his own inimitable way. In addition to the Night Watch, the Rijksmuseum shows the full range of his achievements in a series of masterpieces: self-portraits, landscapes, biblical scenes, and still-lifes. By exploring and illuminating these, this lecture will give a glimplse not only of his exceptional artistic career but also of the inner t life of this most remarkable man in this, the 350th anniversary of his death.
