Every Rembrandt exhibition is an event not to be missed, but a major new show at London’s National Gallery the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum is breaking new ground. The film interweaves Rembrandt’s life story into a full-access, behind-the-scenes look at how these esteemed institutions went about putting the exhibit together.

Focusing on the last years of the artist’s life — widely held to be the years of his most sublime artistic production — we are given a glimpse inside the soul of the artist through the timeless masterpieces he painted during the period.

An impressive lineup of curators and art historians impart the gift of understanding of defining work of this celebrated artist.
