Don't miss the Rembrandt Exhibition at the Budapest Fine Art Museum
The Budapest Fine Arts Museum is hosting another big-name exhibition, entitled "Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age." It continues the tradition of gathering famous works from museums far and wide.

The Exhibition is now on, running from October 31st to February 15th 2015. It can be viewed from 10am-5pm at the museum on Heroes' Square, though separate tickets must be purchased online. It is a special opportunity in more ways than one - it will be the last exhibition before an extended closure for renovation of the museum district.

The exhibiton consists of a total of 178 paintings from more than 100 painters, showing the art of Holland in the 1600s.  About 40 of these works were already part of the Fine Art museum's collection, while the remainder were loaned from various museums from near and far: the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery in London, the National Museum in Stockholm, the Uffizi in Florence, the Prado in Madrid, and even the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Metropolitan in New York.

Twenty paintings are by the master himself, including his earliest recorded piece, "the spectacle sellers" from 1623. Several other artists of a similar genre will also be on display, such as Dirck Hals, Hendrick Vroom, Judith Leyster and 3 by Vermeer.
 The main attraction of course, is the art by Rembrandt, a peaceful giant of Dutch realism who created so many detailed oil paintings, including a great many self-portraits and biblical scenes such as "Judas Repentant" and "Peter and Paul Disputing".
