Rembrandt's Special Affinity for Jews and Judaism - Fact and Myth

Thursday, November 2, 2017 • 13 Cheshvan 5778

7:00 PM - 9:00 PMB'nai Havurah

With so many of Rembrandt's works devoted to stories from the Hebrew Bible, his apparent penchant for Jewish themes, his close and affectionate friendships with many of Amsterdam's leading Jews and his sympathetic portrayal of Jewish faces, the assumption of Rembrandt's special affinity for Jews and Judaism has endured for centuries. 

In this class, we will examine both the history and myth of this peculiar - for the time - relationship.

This class will be held in conjunction with the exhibition "Rembrandt - Etchings from the Collection of the Drs. Tobia and Morton Mower" at the Art Gallery of the Fulginiti Center for Bioethics and Humanities on the Anschutz Medical Campus Center.  This world-class exhibition was organized and curated by Simon Zalkind.

Facilitated by Simon Zalkind.  Registration requested, click here.  No cost for members; $15 for non-members.
