Friday, March 1: Rembrandt and the Meaning of Vision
Rembrandt filled his art with an astonishing variety of
subjects. Sight and insight, vision and the visionary are

Throughout Rembrandt’s work, the example of Caravaggio was
an essential recurring component – even though he may never
have seen an original painting by him.
