an evening of rembrandt...and...some flowers

My Alma Mater hosted an alumni event at The Cleveland Museum of Art for the "Rembrandt in America" exhibition.  


The evening began with a private lecture about Rembrandt given by Chief Curator, Dr. C. Griffith Mann.  The lecture really brought the experience of viewing the exhibition to life.  Two things really surprised me.  The first was that Rembrandt did not necessarily paint an entire portrait himself.  He had apprentices.  The other interesting fact - he was quite the prolific printermaker - very experimental and original in his approach.  The fact that this was done in the 1600's was rather astonishing and quite entrepreneurial.

After touring the exhibition we were off the Cleveland Botanical Gardens for a reception.  I took this photo on the walk over.  Notice the Frank Ghery building peeking out in the

Walked in the front door and scent from these hyacinths was intoxicating.  

These tulips don't even look real but they are.


If you live in the area, make the time to take in the Rembrandt exhibition.  Dr. Mann said this exhibit was an event of a generation - to have all the pieces that make up the exhibition under one roof.
