Masterpieces of The Leiden Collection: The Age of Rembrandt

The works of art to be shown in the temporary exhibition galleries of the Paintings department in the Sully Wing including over 30 pieces, most of which have never before been exhibited in France. Curated by the Louvre, the selection encompasses portraits, history, paintings and genre scenes, and brings to life the historic burst of creativity of the Dutch Golden Age. It includes all 11 of the collection’s works by Rembrandt himself, the most comprehensive grouping of its kind outside of a national museum, and range from the iconic masterpieces Minerva and Young Girl in a Gold-Trimmed Cloak to the dramatic recent discovery of Unconscious  Patient (Allegory of Smell), the earliest of the master’s signed works.
