Name Dropping—The Critical Fortunes of Rembrandt's Portraits

In The Farrell Auditorium

Ann Jensen Adams, Department of the History of Art and Architecture, University of California at Santa Barbara

During his lifetime, Rembrandt’s portraits were valued as much, or more, for the identity of their sitters than for the characteristics of his style.  Adams discusses the appreciation for Rembrandt’s portraits in their own time and then traces how their identities and valuation changed through the centuries and the cultural shifts that motivated them.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Art History and Archaeology, Washington University in St. Louis
