AWC Member Jane Choy graciously

opens her home and shares her knowledge

once again. Holland has designated 2019 as

“The Year of Rembrandt” commemorating

his legacy. This year marks 350 years since

his death. This special lecture provides an

opportunity to learn about Rembrandt, as

you experience the many tours and exhibits

in the Netherlands throughout 2019.

Rembrandt is considered by many to be

Holland’s greatest artist and the equal of

Mozart, Shakespeare and Michelangelo.

Unlike van Gogh, another great Dutch artist,

Rembrandt has not left much written

material explaining his views on art. But

what he has left is a unique visual autobiography

in his self-portraits, which he

did from the time he was 20 until he died

at the age of 63. This lecture will use the

self-portraits as a thread through his life

and with his other masterpieces explore the

man and what, why and how he painted.

Was he a businessman or bohemian? Rebel

or romantic?

walk. We will conclude at Pulchri Studio

with many gems in between. Many of the

places we will tour are now mostly closed
