SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

December 15: Why Him? Rembrandt's Enduring Fame & Lasting Legacy

Molly Medakovich, Ph.D., art historian & Denver Art Museum teaching specialist

How and why did an artist like Rembrandt van Rijn make such an indelible mark on art, history, and the popular imagination? Building on previous course sessions, we'll further explore the conditions surrounding Rembrandt's rise to fame, the ways his numerous and psychologically gripping self-portraits have shaped our understanding of him, 18th- and 19th-century revivals, and reinventions of his work, and modern-day characterizations of the man and the legend in biography and film. Revel in this long love affair with Rembrandt, whose intrigue has endured for over 400 years in many shapes and forms.
