Rembrandt in Canada: New Thoughts on an Old Master

The recent gift of Rembrandt’s Portrait of a Man with Arms Akimbo by Drs Alfred and Isabel Bader offers an opportunity to consider the enduring legacy of the artist in Canada as a subject of scholarly study and aesthetic enrichment. These talks by scholars, artists, and art world professionals position the artist and his work in Canadian collections in new light. As the Agnes is the home of three authenticated paintings by Rembrandt, the day is a celebration of the recent Bader gift, the study of Dutch art across the country, and the Canadian-Dutch relationship.
