Nicolaes Maes - Rembrandt's versatile pupil
October 17, 2019 - January 19, 2020 - We concluded the Rembrandt & the Golden Age year with the first international retrospective exhibition about one of Rembrandt's most talented students: Nicolaes Maes.
Rembrandt's pupil Nicolaes Maes is one of the most beloved masters of Dutch 17th-century painting. He started his career painting Biblical stories, in which the influence of his teacher Rembrandt is clearly visible. His original representations of everyday life were a great source of inspiration for painters such as Pieter de Hooch and Johannes Vermeer.
