Rembrandt, the Jews, and “That Portrait” at the Kimbell

FREE Special Evening Lecture

Friday, February 10, 6 p.m.

Pavilion Auditorium

No reservations required

Larry Silver, Farquhar Professor of History of Art,

University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

Rembrandt, whose neighborhood included prosperous Jews, responded sensitively to the Hebrew Bible and to the presence of such living descendants of the Bible. But he was also a committed Christian whose representation of the Jewish people differed markedly in scenes from the Old and New Testaments. This talk will examine the important Rembrandt portrait in the Kimbell, identified as a young Jew, in this context, including in relation to the artist’s own portrait-like images of the head of Jesus.
