Tickets for blockbuster Rembrandt exhibition are now on sale

LONDON, September 11, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Tickets are now on sale for the National Gallery's forthcoming autumn exhibition looking at the work produced by Rembrandt in his later years. Rembrandt: The Late Works promises to be a fascinating look at the paintings produced by the Dutch master during his turbulent final years, which were marked with controversy but also produced some of his most soulful, deeply moving and strikingly modern works. The exhibition takes place between 15th October and 18th January 2015 and for information about how to book tickets, see LondonTown.com. At the same time, you can explore LondonTown.com to find the best nearby restaurants and shops or to book an afternoon tea in London to accompany the exhibition.

Rembrandt's final years were difficult ones. Having already suffered the loss of his wife and three of their children, Rembrandt was burdened with bankruptcy, acrimonious legal proceedings with a former lover, and the loss of his common-law wife and only remaining son. However, far from diminishing as he aged, Rembrandt's creativity gathered new energy. From the 1650s until his death in 1669, Rembrandt pursued an artistic style that was expressive and radical. His bold manipulation of printing and painting techniques and progressive interpretations of traditional subjects inspired generations of artists, earning him a reputation as the greatest master of the Dutch Golden Age.

Through famous masterpieces and rare drawings and prints, Rembrandt: The Late Works examines the themes that preoccupied Rembrandt as he grew older: self-scrutiny, experimentation, light, observation of everyday life and even other artists' works; as well as expressions of intimacy, contemplation, conflict and reconciliation.  Rembrandt: The Late Works has been organised in collaboration with Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, offering you an opportunity to experience the passion, emotion and innovation of the great master. For more information about this and other exhibition that are scheduled to take place at the National Gallery in 2014 and 2015, see LondonTown.com.
