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.

great show! nice to see the different stages of his approach. i liked the music on 7052 and kept playing it over and over while i viewed the rest of the show.one of my favorites was the Emmaus with the curtain pulled back. i liked the idea of the revealing and revelation. also this one was very accessible to us.the grand finale one with the tilted head definitely looks like an invitation to us.anyone think he was a believer? i do.

Great exhibit. Well worth the time.Now what's the difference between an etching, dry point and engraving?

The juxtapositions which Rembrandt utilized in efforts to emphasize the true light within Jesus and those who followed him, like Mary, truly captivates the mind. I found this exhibit to be quite interesting, but, additionally, to be quite informative regarding the life of Jesus. This exhibit brings light to the cliche that a picture is worth a thousand words.

The etchings had a lot of detail, it was pretty amazing how Rembrandt could depict so much perspective through the use of just darks and lights.

Just bought a pack of Messiah Mints ( Save your breath)and Jesus post it notes ( what would Jesus do?) ( Thus I say unto you)in the gift shop. You got to love good old American Commercialism.

I enjoyed the etchings and drawings. I love how small and detailed they are, and how they show such dynamic facial expressions. They are very unique.

What wonderful, rich stories some of these works convey...one in particular....I have never seen anything like it and could view it and drink it in for hours!

The etchings are truly impressive, however throughout the exhibit I found discrepancies in the crediting and descriptions of the drawings and paintings. I understand that the curators stayed true to the credits of the lenders, however there is one drawing blatantly signed by a student while it is credited to Rembrandt himself. (Also a small painting labeled and described as a single work using emotion and expression, when it clearly was meant to be a study for The Young Jewish Man.)Thanks for introducing me to Rembrandt's etchings, though. I enjoyed them and intend on researching them further!

Thank you PMA for bringing these pieces together here. I only wish my art teacher from Mendon, Massachusetts could have seen them with us!

I loved the exhibit. I especially appreciated seeing the ink drawings and prints up close. Rembrandt has inspired me for many years as a printmaker. I now want to visit Holland!

I saw Rembrandt's Late Religious Portraits exhibit at the National Gallery of Art and it was amazing. Can't wait to see Rembrant and the Face of Jesus in Philly.
