Masterpieces from the Royal Collection: Rembrandt The Shipbuilder and his Wife

Saturday 1 April 2017 - Monday 28 August 2017

Description:

An established partnership with Royal Collection Trust has secured the loan of
a magnificent standalone masterpiece by Rembrandt van Rijn which is the first
ever painting by the artist to visit the city. ‘The Ship Builder and his Wife’, 1633, draws
attention to Hull’s historic trading links and maritime history. It will be displayed
alongside British Library loans and items drawn from the permanent collection
exploring the rumour that Rembrandt may have lived in Hull for a few months between
1661 and 62, motivated by the desire to escape his creditors in Amsterdam.
