From 27 January to 23 April 2017 the Rembrandt House Museum presents the work of the contemporary British artist Glenn Brown (1966) in Glenn Brown – Rembrandt: After Life. Brown is internationally renowned for his intriguing and confrontational works, which are usually very large and inspired by the work of Old Masters, Rembrandt among them. Brown appropriates and subverts the work of Rembrandt and his contemporaries with merciless audacity. He is making new work for the exhibition (paintings, drawings and etchings), which will be shown for the first time.

The Rembrandt House has long concentrated on showing Rembrandt’s influence on other artists, but this exhibition breaks new ground. Never before has the Rembrandt House staged an exhibition of work by a foreign artist of Glenn Brown’s international stature. In 1997 Brown’s work hung at Sensation in the Royal Academy of Arts in London alongside such artists as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. He is regarded as one of the leading YBAs (Young British Artists). His work enjoys wide recognition and this year was the subject of three solo exhibitions in the United States and France.
