From quick sketches of figures and faces, to views of the Dutch landscape, to biblical scenes, Rembrandt animated his renderings of a now-lost world, bringing it to life. The distinguished collector of Dutch drawings, George Abrams, shares thoughts and observations about his favorite works by Rembrandt in his own collection and among the drawings at the Harvard Art Museums. And he introduces significant students and followers of the great Dutch master, whose identities are coming to light thanks to ongoing research.
