Art History Bus Trip to the Detroit Art Institute

Author: Lonnie Atkinson

Thanks to the generosity of the department and a TBC grant, as well as coordination by Professor Rosenberg, we were able to charter a 38-seat bus to go to Detroit on Feb. 3 to see the exhibition “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus.”  Below is the link to the DIA page about the exhibition.

This exhibition opened in Paris at the Louvre, travelled to Philadelphia, and will close in Detroit on February 12.   This is a unique opportunity.  Among the major works on exhibition are The Supper at Emmaus from the Louvre, six Heads of Christ, a fine impression of the 100 Guilder Print, and paintings, prints, and drawings from London, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, and other venues.   There are about 45 works specifically attributed to Rembrandt in the exhibition, along with about 25 more which are his studio or other artists.
