Last month, the Getty announced the redesign of RembrandtinSoCal.org, a website originally launched in 2008 that showcases 14 Rembrandt paintings housed at the Getty, LACMA, Norton Simon, Hammer and San Diego’s Timken Museum, the third largest collection in the country behind New York and Washington, D.C. Complete with video and audio portions, the online resource illustrates the Dutch master’s artwork amassed in L.A. over the past 80 years, dating back to J. Paul Getty’s 1938 acquisition of “Portrait of Marten Looten.”
To mark the 350th anniversary of the painter’s death, the Getty hosts Celebrating Rembrandt, a discussion that looks at Rembrandt’s “impact in three different media: drawings, paintings, and prints,” and features Getty and Hammer curators Stephanie Schrader, Anne Woollett and Cynthia Burlingham, as well as UCLA lecturer and printmaker Jacob Samuel. The lecture is followed by a reception hosted the consulate general of the Netherlands.
The Getty, 1200 Getty Center Dr., Bel-Air; Wed., July 24, 7 p.m.; free, RSVP required. (310) 440-7300, getty.edu.
