Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India at The Getty Center

Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India at The Getty Center

One of the most intriguing series in Rembrandt’s oeuvre comprises his drawings made in the style of artists serving the Mughal court in India. Juxtaposing Rembrandt’s depictions of Mughal rulers and courtiers with Indian paintings and drawings of similar compositions, this exhibition at The Getty Center, Los Angles, CA, reveals how contact with Mughal art inspired Rembrandt to draw in an entirely different, refined style prompted by his curiosity for a foreign culture. This unique exhibition runs until June 24, 2018.
