Rembrandt's Naked Truth: Drawing Nude Models in the Golden Age. In the 1640s in Amsterdam, a pioneering group of artists began drawing directly from the nude model. This included, for the first time in European art, female models. These artists not only studied correct anatomy, they also pursued ideal beauty and judicious poses. Rembrandt noted this development, and responded with a further innovation, embracing nature's imperfections and often leaving his models at ease. This catalogue presents a groundbreaking exhibition at The Rembrandt House Museum that traces this remarkable artistic confrontation, played out in drawings, paintings and prints of great power and beauty.
