This year, the Rijksmuseum will be presenting the first major retrospective of the later work of Rembrandt van Rijn: a once-in-a-lifetime event. Over 100 works from leading museums and private collections from around the world will be on display here in Amsterdam.
In parallel to the Late Rembrandt exhibition, the Rijksmuseum is presenting the earliest photographers from its own collection. There are more than 45 unique photos and paper negatives on display by Charles Nègre, Maxime du Camp and Félix Teynard, among others in the Photo Gallery. Highlights include a portrait that William Henry Fox Talbot, the inventor of photography, made of his daughter and an 1842 portrait of his Dutch assistant Nicolaas Henneman in negative.
