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.

I'm not a Christian, but I was curious to see how Rembrandt portrayed Jesus. I was deeply moved to see such humanity, love and sorrow in many of the pictures. And I found myself wondering about the beautiful young man who sat for so many of those pictures. What was his life like? Who was he? And then I found myself thinking the same thoughts about Jesus. It was an unexpectedly spiritual experience. The power of art to transform is truly amazing!

I reluctantly attended the exhibit with friends from out of town. To my delight I learned many new things about Rembrandt's life. The progression of images and the foundations upon which they were drawn made it a worthwhile and enjoyable trip.
How could I not have known if it was at the Museum, I would love it.

I loved Rembrandt's mastery of light, his ability to show fine detail, and his ability to convey emotion. I thought the newspapers had kind of hyped the exhibit by talking about how wonderful it was that Rembrandt used Jewish models. I really didn't see this in many of the paintings and prints, although there were works in which this was clearly evident. I am very glad I went: how often does one have the chance to see works by Rembrandt

A wonderful and enlightening exhibit.Jesus leads and inspires my life, I like the way Rembrandts's expressing Christ's emotion and feelings. I am sure that is truly makes up who our Lord's true characteristics. I liked Mary and Martha's and Jesus picture, it truly shows how in tune with his spirituality he was.Seeking first the things of Christ trumps anything this world can offer.The exhibit was awesome.

Very interesting and informative. What a privilege to see so many great works assembled together. I wonder if Rembrandt's departure from tradition would have been so well received if he hadn't already been accepted as a master.

This is a wonderful exhibit, well worth the price of admission. Like Rembrandt, my favorite resurrection story of Jesus is the Supper at Emmaus. As the disciples, I believe that we come to know Christ in the ordinary things of life, as simple as sharing a meal with friends. I was inspired to see the various renderings of this supper where Jesus sits with his followers. When they finally recognize who he is, he disappears from their sight, perhaps to reveal himself to others, even as he did to Rembrandt himself.

This exhibit shows lots of printing and Jesus. They both show lots of details and expressions of different faces. He knows how to describe things very well such as faces. He is a true genius. By the way lots of expensive things here!!!!!!

All these pictures were very attracting and interesting. Listening to them was the best part, i learned so much. My favorite part was learning about how Rembrandt printed back then. I would recommened this to everybody out there.
