Lucas van Leyden Masterpiece

Rijksmuseum | Amsterdam
€8.75 - €17.5
For the coming two years the Rijksmuseum’s Gallery of Honour is hosting 'The Last Judgement' (1526-27), the sixteenth-century work of genius by Lucas van Leyden. Over the last 450 years the altarpiece has left Leiden for brief periods only twice, which makes its temporary relocation to Amsterdam a historic event.

ucas van Leyden (1494-1533) was recognized as a prodigy throughout Europe at an early stage because of his sublime etchings and drawings. This draughtsman, printmaker and painter was an important source of inspiration for many generations of painters, Rembrandt van Rijn among them. Rembrandt was brought up in Leiden and it was there that he embarked on his career as a painter. The Last Judgement was on show in Leiden Town Hall continuously from the end of the sixteenth century until it was moved to Museum De Lakenhal in 1874. Rembrandt is certain to have seen it there. The painting’s presentation in the Rijksmuseum is a unique opportunity to show the triptych in the Gallery of Honour in the context of Rembrandt masterpieces.

The exhibition is over since the 01/09/2018
