Join us for another fascinating talk by Dr Giorgia Bottinelli, Curator of Historic Art, Norfolk Museums Service, which reveals her research for the exhibition Rembrandt: Lightening the Darkness, opening October 2017.

Giorgia’s talk will draw from her close examination of the 93 Rembrandt etchings in the Norfolk Museums Collection and will reveal for us the minute detail, the amusing moment or wry observation that are the hallmarks of Rembrandt’s work. These images testify to the humanity and compassion that have made Rembrandt perhaps the most influential and revered artist of the European tradition.

Giorgia’s talk will be followed by a warming soup lunch and then she will take us into the galleries for a last chance to see her exhibition ‘to watch the corn grow, and the blossoms set’: The art of Claughton Pellew. Pellew’s work in the collection was the focus of a wonderful talk given to EAAF members last year and it is marvellous to see Giorgia’s research so beautifully realised.
