Rembrandt: The Curious Case of Cabinets
Friday, Dec. 11/noon
Rembrandt’s working studio featured, among other things, an eclectic collection of natural history, armament and art objects in what was known as a “cabinet of curiosities.” Michael P. Branch, UNR professor of literature and environment, discusses the historical precedent for these cabinets and traces their trajectory to the present.
View the recreation of Rembrandt’s studio on display at the museum featuring marble busts, African artifacts and a variety of taxidermy examples.
Art Bites give attendees the opportunity to experience an informal and intimate introduction to works in the galleries over a short half-hour dialogue. Cost: $5/$4 museum members. The Art Bite series is supported in part by the Gabelli Foundation.
