The Golden Age Of Dutch Art

SABANCI UNIVERSITY’S SAKIP SABANCI MUSEUM HAS AS ITS MISSION TO BRING THE PUBLIC THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF ART EAST AND WEST, THIS TIME IN THE WORKS OF THE GREAT DUTCH PAINTER, REMBRANDT.

Now in its tenth year, the museum is bringing art lovers not just Rembrandt but 58 of his Dutch contemporaries as well. The exhibition, Rembrandt and His Contemporaries, another in the events organized on the 400th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Holland, opened on February 22. There’s no need to hurry since it runs through June 10, and you can take advantage of spring’s milder weather to follow up a Sunday breakfast by taking in the works of this magnificent 17th century artist.

The exhibition of 74 canvases, 19 sketches and 18 objects culled from Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum and leading museums around the world is open daily except Mondays.

Tipped to be one of 2012’s most exciting exhibitions hands down, Where Darkness Meets Light: Rembrandt and His Contemporaries is also hosting works by Vermeer, best known for his painting, Girl With a Pearl Earring.
