Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others about Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus.

It's amazing~!

It is a nice exhibit. I recommend it. The only thing I wish I could have seen is the "Night Watch". Alas, you can't have everything.

Much as I loved the exhibit, there was no mention of Rembrandt's technique.....chiaroscuro. (sorry, bad spelling) I think that techniqueshould be a part of any exhibit of his work.

The experience of seeing a Rembrant painting is a truly religious experience...what is the face of love? Rembrant was surely asking himself this question in the finer details of his portraits. Or perhaps he wasn't at all! Either way, the questions this exhibit raises about culture and religion and history and how we define "compassion" are compelling and important. Thanks PMA--you're the best.

Thank You for including/emphasizing the Judaic roots of the artwork.

I enjoyed Rembrandt's seven small head portraits of Jesus. The deep expression he paints on Jesus' eyes, lips, and expression are moving. He gave him a human face that the view could connect to

It was so wonderful to see the meditations of the artist in picture form!

Remarkable images, out of the "ordinary" depictions. Good to see!

Makes me want to go back and read the Bible again.

The Face of Jesus was more about the face of Rembrandt. Obviously, he made numerous portraits of Jesus in order to pay off his debts. Even though the commentary noted that two portraits were found in Remrandt's bedroom and were his "prize possessions", he was probably saving them for a rainy day to pay his debts. As an artist, I think Rembrandt could relate to the current economy.

Not very moving overall, but I loved the etching where one could see Rambrandt's face in different poses. Very clever of Rembrandt to use his portrait as the condemning elders. I wish the commentaries caught that one.

Was it me, or did the majority of the "faces" of Jesus look the same except for the portraits of the Jewish boys who were noted as not Jesus...

What did you think?

I found the exhibition wondrous!! I was insulted by the "Jesus Doll," it cheapened the whole experience.I expect more from the staff. Sorry.

WHY why why don't museums make the print on the captions bigger so more of us can read them when standing behind others? Boomers are aging and we are the ones with money.
