Rembrandt Remastered

5 September - 3 October 2018 - The Great Hall

This exhibition is a remarkable collection of digitally remastered and life size paintings from one of the world’s greatest painters of all time. Each work is reproduced exactly as it may have left the master’s studio nearly 400 years ago.

Rembrandt Remastered is an exhibition of 57 of Rembrandt’s most powerful and visually arresting paintings. The images are original size and displayed in chronological order, giving an amazing overview of Rembrandt’s most beautiful works through this unique collection.  Using the latest techniques and the inexhaustible knowledge of Professor Ernst van de Wetering, the works are digitally restored to their original condition as they may have left Rembrandt’s studio.

Rembrandt’s original paintings are now spread over the world in art galleries and private collections. Some paintings have been damaged or stolen, and so the original mastery is no longer fully accessible to viewers today. This exhibition gives New Zealanders a remarkable opportunity to experience the world of Rembrandt brought to their doorstep.

Some of the works included in the exhibition include:

  • The Nightwatch
  • Danae
  • The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp
  • Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee
  • The Polish Rider
  • The Jewish Bride
  • The Syndics of the Amsterdam Clothmaker’s Guild
  • And some of his best self portraits.
