We are thrilled to announce an incredible last minute addition to 'Rembrandt: The Late Works'. His ambitious painting 'The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis' (about 1661–2), will be coming to the Gallery. It will be the first time this powerful artwork has been shown in the UK.
'The Three Crosses' is one Rembrandt's most dynamic prints and will be on display as part of Rembrandt: The Late Works.
The print went through five different states. This first state is printed on an unusual and expensive support of vellum (treated calf-skin) and shows Rembrandt using both etching and a technique called drypoint. Book tickets to see it in person: http://ow.ly/BDoYi
