0 Comments on this event

From March 13 to June 24, the exhibition "Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India" will be on view at the Getty Center, Los Angeles, CA. Admission is free, no ticket required.

"Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India"

One of the most intriguing series in Rembrandt's oeuvre comprises his drawings made in the style of artists serving the Mughal court in India. Juxtaposing Rembrandt's depictions of Mughal rulers and courtiers with Indian paintings and drawings of similar compositions, this exhibition reveals how contact with Mughal art inspired Rembrandt to draw in an entirely different, refined style prompted by his curiosity for a foreign culture.
