Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India

Published on March 15, 2018

Rembrandt created a series of unusually meticulous drawings depicting emperors and courtiers from Mughal India. This exhibition explores 20 of the Dutch master’s careful studies of imperial Mughal portraiture and places them within a broader circuit of cross-cultural exchanges. By juxtaposing Rembrandt’s drawings with Indian paintings of similar compositions—and pairing Mughal artworks with European prints that inspired them—fascinating stories unfold about the flow of art and ideas across time and oceans.

The exhibition is being held at the J. Paul Getty Museum located on 1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049 and runs from 3/13 - 6/24/18.
