In this outstanding and unique exhibition you will see 57 digitally remastered works at the Napier exhibition of Rembrandt Remastered, giving an amazing overview of Rembrandt’s most beautiful works through this unique collection of life sized paintings. Not even in Amsterdam can you see so many Rembrandts in one location. Some of the works included are: The Nightwatch, Danae, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp, Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee, The Polish Rider, The Jewish Bride, The Syndics of the Amsterdam Clothmaker's Guild, and some of his best self portraits.

This exhibition is being hosted by the Rotary Club of Napier, proudly sponsored by The Gas Hub; with support from Creative Communities Napier and Napier City Council. Proceeds from the exhibition will be supporting Rotary charities. The CAN (Creative Arts Napier www.thecan.co.nz ) is the venue for the exhibition; a community arts facility.

“Only in the cases of a very few artists, such as Shakespeare and Beethoven, do we have the impression they have changed the world. Rembrandt has to be amongst that company”
Rembrandt, one of the greatest European artists, made 330 paintings in his life. These paintings are now spread across the world; some in national art galleries and private collections, others stolen or damaged, with much of the original mastery no longer accessible for viewing today.

This world-class exhibition harnesses the latest techniques in digital photography and the inexhaustible knowledge of Professor Ernst van de Wetering - the world’s preeminent Rembrandt expert – to offer the spectacular opportunity to see these masterpieces in full size, and digitally restored to their original condition as if they just left Rembrandt’s studio. This leading exhibition is direct from Amsterdam in collaboration with the Rembrandt Research Project Foundation. The exhibition is brought to NZ by Rembrandt Suits, KLM, The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the NetherlaNZ Foundation.

Rembrandt Remastered uses the latest techniques and the inexhaustible knowledge of Professor Ernst van de Wetering, all the works are digitally restored to their original condition as they may have left Rembrandt’s studio. The paintings are the same size as the originals and displayed to provide an overview of the life and oeuvre of the great painter.
