Rembrandt’s Orient

Katy Donoghue

11 December 2020

On view at Kunstmuseum Basel is “Rembrandt’s Orient,’’ an exhibition showcasing works by Dutch artist Rembrandt and his colleagues. The exhibition explores the different ways in which artists of the Dutch Golden Age responded to non-European cultures and their artistic products. Objects from foreign lands—such as turbans, rugs, sabres and silk gowns—were central to Rembrandt and his contemporaries’ practices. Altogether, the works in the exhibition highlight how foreign cultures have influenced the 17th century Netherlands and illustrate how ‘Orient’ and ‘Occident’ were conceptualised at the time. In “Rembrandt’s Orient,’’ viewers will find over 120 pieces, including paintings, drawings, prints, miniatures, maps and books.
