Artmeet - The Friends of the Auckland Art Gallery presents a talk by art history student, Katy Bond.
What cause did Rembrandt van Rijn have to paint his wife, Saskia van Uylenburgh, wearing fanciful, historically inspired costume? This curious, recurring feature of the Dutch master’s oeuvre is the focus of this discussion, which seeks to understand Rembrandt’s eschewal of contemporary dress. Through the analysis of costume, Saskia’s fashioned image will be shown to reflect Rembrandt’s broader artistic ambitions.
