Oxford: the Ashmolean Museum for the Young Rembrandt lecture and exhibition, and the Bodleian Library
Thursday 05 March 2020

We will have coffee and biscuits on arrival at the Ashmolean, then a lecture about the Young Rembrandt, and a buffet lunch (included in the ticket) and the Exhibition entrance.  

This is the first exhibition in the UK to explore the early years of the career of the famous Dutch artist, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669). The exhibition will chart the astonishing transformation of Rembrandt’s work from his earliest known paintings, prints and drawings, to the moment he become famous in Amsterdam in the mid-1630s.
On display will be the largest collection of artworks devoted to the young Rembrandt: 34 paintings by Rembrandt, 10 by his most important contemporaries, and a further 90 drawings and prints from international and private collections.  

Afterwards, a short walk away,  we will have an hour’s guided tour of the Bodleian Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe, dating back to the 15th century. It holds an incomparable collection of books and manuscripts.
NB: Please be aware that the Bodleian tour involves three flights of uneven stairs, so you can choose to opt out of this tour - see two prices below.
