Depot Artspace in Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore is excited to announce it is hosting the internationally celebrated travelling exhibition, Rembrandt Remastered which provides a unique insight into the life and oeuvre of the great painter.
The exhibition comprises 50 digital reproductions of paintings by the 17th-century Dutch master, including one of his most famous works, the five-by-four-metre masterpiece, The Nightwatch. Based on photographs, each life-sized reproduction has been “remastered”, to reflect what the painting looked like at the time it was completed in Rembrandt’s studio 400 years ago.
Erin Griffey, foremost specialist on Rembrandt in Australasia, says exhibition visitors will have access to paintings held in galleries or museums across the world, as well as works from private collections including Judas Repentant Returning the Pieces of Silver.
Other paintings on display are “remastered” reproductions of Rembrandt originals which are no longer available because they have been lost, stolen, damaged or altered from the original. This includes The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, which will be hanging at the Navy Museum in Torpedo Bay for the duration of the Depot Artspace exhibition.
Monday 19 December 2016 to Sunday 19 February 2017. (Except 25 & 26 December and 1 & 2 January).
