11.15.2019 | LECTURE: Name Dropping–The Critical Fortunes of Rembrandt’s Portraits | Free - $5

November 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Categories: Historical, Lecture, Visual Arts


During his lifetime, Rembrandt’s portraits were valued as much, or more, for the identity of their sitters than for the characteristics of his style. Adams discusses the appreciation for Rembrandt’s portraits in their own time and then traces how their identities and valuation changed through the centuries and the cultural shifts that motivated them.
