Rembrandt - Frick Collection New York

In the summer (30.05.2017 - 20.08.2017), The Frick Collection will present Rembrandt’s Abraham Entertaining the Angels of 1646. This captivating, small, and luminous oil painting on panel, generously lent from a private collection, has been exhibited only a handful of times in its history and was last on public view ten years ago. This exceptional loan has inspired a tightly focused exhibition in which the painting will appear alongside other depictions by Rembrandt of the Old Testament figure Abraham—a spectacular selection of prints and drawings from American and international collections. Divine Encounter: Rembrandt’s Abraham and the Angels will offer a rare opportunity to examine the artist’s continuing engagement with the Abraham narrative and thus with the central themes of his work as a history painter: divine intervention, revelation, and prophecy.
