Legacy of Decency: Rembrandt, Jews & Danes Art Exhibition

Start Date:
February 29, 2020
End Date:
May 24, 2020
Elverhoj Museum of History & Art
CA United States

“Legacy of Decency: Rembrandt, Jews and Danes,” a powerful new art exhibition on display February 29 through Mary 24, features a selection of 21 prints by Dutch Master Rembrandt. The art is paired with displays about the Danish WWII rescue of their Jewish population. This exhibition links people, time and place through artwork and action with a legacy created by neighbors who cared for, and about, one another.

The prints on view highlight the artist’s nuanced relationship with Amsterdam’s Jewish citizens. They are detailed and intimate, much like Rembrandt’s relationship with his subjects, many of whom were neighbors and friends.

The art is from the collection of Howard and Fran Berger, gift to Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art.

Elverhoj Museum of History and Art, located at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang, is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm. There is no charge for admission. Suggested donation is $5. For more information, phone the Museum at (805) 686-1211.
