The Season Launch celebrates four new exhibitions, including Dr Jacquelyn Coutré’s Leiden circa 1630: Rembrandt Emerges. This not-to-miss show offers a revelatory introduction to the Dutch master’s formative years.  We also celebrate a new exhibition space, the Franks Gallery, in Etherington House, with Between Chance and Order: Milly Ristvedt. Two additional shows—Tracing Self and Other and Split Between the I and the Gaze—draw upon our contemporary collections to consider how we define ourselves, and see and experience others. We will also celebrate a dramatic newly commissioned work by Sandra Brewster, gracing the Atrium.
