The Royal Castle in Warsaw has recently opened their latest exhibition entitled Rembrandt's World. Artists. Burghers. Explorers.

According to the exhibition blurb:

Girl in the Picture Frame and Scholar at His Writing Table by Rembrandt are the jewels of the art collection in The Royal Castle in Warsaw. They are also among top most precious paintings in Poland. This summer both masterpieces are exhibited among over 200 artworks that were created in the Age of Rembrandt. The exhibits come from Polish state museums and libraries as well as from private collections. All the artworks had been carefully chosen to illustrate the background of Rembrandt’s life and thus enable better understanding of his art. Exhibition focuses on several topics: Power, War, Dutch Landscape, Colonies, Science, Religion and Philosophy, Burgher’s Home, Art and Culture, Entertainment. Each room presents a single engraving by Rembrandt which is a point of reference for other exhibits. Rembrandt himself – through his engravings – acts as a discreet guide leading us through the exhibition. Due to the fact, that the engravings should not be exposed for a long time to the light, they will be replaced by another set of Rembrandt’s graphics at the beginning of the August.

The show will run until 19th September 2021.
