About this activity
There was a time when master painter Rembrandt van Rijn ran the Netherlands' largest painting studio from here. Then he lost it all to bankruptcy. Peruse exquisite etchings and sketches by the great artist and see two amazing works considered Rembrandt "rush jobs" in what's now one of Amsterdam's most fascinating museums.
Between 1639 and 1658, Rembrandt himself lived and worked in this beautiful Amsterdam house, and collected seashells (yes, really!) The Rembrandt House now owns pretty much the whole collection of Rembrandt’s etchings, and a lot of his possessions.
See Rembrandt’s military helmets and weaponry, Roman busts and of course, those seashells!
New from May 2018, see two rediscovered works by Rembrandt on loan from a New York collector - Portrait of Petronella Buys (1635) and Man with sword (ca. 1640-1644).
The whereabouts of the Portrait of Petronella Buys was unknown for decades, before it appeared on the art market last year. Originally it was assumed both works were painted by an assistant, but now it's believed they were simply something of a Rembrandt "rush job."
The Rembrandt House has been redecorated with furniture, art and objects dating from the 17th century, so as your browse this master's work, you can really get a feel for his world.
