“Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker” Pulling Together the Exhibition 

Arts & Culture

with Timothy Standring

August 20, 2018

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; program from 6 – 7:30 p.m.

The Sebastian – Vail | Vail

As a keen observer of the human condition, Rembrandt produced original prints covering a Shakespearean universe of subjects drawn from the world around him as well as taking inspiration from the classical past, religious texts, opera and theatre. With memorable insights and a subtle sense of humor, Timothy J. Standring, the Denver Art Museum’s Gates Family Foundation Curator, will discuss what it takes to pull together “Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker,” the subject of the Denver Art Museum’s world exclusive exhibition which opens September 15 in Denver.
Join us to gain a new appreciation of Rembrandt the dramaturge, whose brilliant technical achievements as a painter, draughtsman and especially as a printmaker made him one of the most significant artists of European art.  Moreover, you’ll understand the entrepreneurial side of this Dutch Master, an artist who revised his images seemingly without end, why he printed them on different papers and — in the end — why he was incapable of repeating himself.  
Timothy J. Standring is the Gates Family Foundation Curator at the Denver Art Museum. He received his B.A. from the University of Notre Dame and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. Standring has been a Fellow at The Clark Art Institute, a Guest Scholar at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art, in addition to receiving other grants. Standring has curated over seventeen exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum and has published widely on topics that include 17th-century Roman patrons, monographic studies on Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, British watercolor sketching, Poussin’s early works, Van Gogh’s drawings, contemporary realist artists, Degas’s monotypes and Rembrandt’s prints. His next project involves American Impressionism from a French point of view.
