Rembrandt: The Final Years offers visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the passion and innovation of Rembrandt’s late works, in an exhibition organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum.

The exhibition will bring together approximately 40 paintings, 20 drawings and 30 prints, featuring key works lent by European and North American museums including the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Mauritshuis in the The Hague.

Rembrandt's restless creativity gathered new energy as he aged. Between the 1650s and his death in 1669 he consciously pursued a new style that was even more expressive and profound. His audacious manipulation of printing and painting techniques, and his new and original interpretations of traditional subjects, gave his work a depth that influenced countless printmakers, painters and draftsmen in the generations that followed.

This extraordinary exhibition highlights the formal and iconographic concerns that occupied Rembrandt in the final years of his life. The works he produced during this period are soulful, honest and in many ways define our image of Rembrandt as a man and as an artist.
