Rembrandt’s masterful oil sketch of Christ is the first of his works to ever join a museum collection in the Gulf
When Louvre Abu Dhabi opens its show celebrating the Dutch Golden Age on February 14, the exhibition will leave its mark. The museum has acquired a rare oil sketch by Rembrandt, showing the Christ figure bent forward in thought. The study, Head of a Young Man in Prayer (circa 1655), will be on display for the first time during Rembrandt, Vermeer and the Dutch Golden Age: Masterpieces from The Leiden Collection and the Musée du Louvre, and will remain in Abu Dhabi on permanent view.
