Rembrandt’s work can serve as a starting point for many themes. Not only do we marvel at the versatility of his works, their humanism and the masterful variety of techniques employed, but also at the mythologised biography of the artist and the people around him. The summer online meetings of the Art Transfer Foundation will provide an opportunity to take a completely new and unusual look at the Master from Leiden. They will deal with his teachers, collaborators and pupils, whose work is usually marginalised. Is it always right? An encounter with these lesser-known figures may turn out to be surprising. Not only is it worth paying more attention to their work, but it may turn out that getting to know them will also shed new light on the works of the Master himself. During the lectures, besides masterpieces from the most famous museums, there will be an opportunity to see works from Polish collections, e.g. those currently on show at the exhibitions Różne spojrzenia at the National Museum in Warsaw and Świat Rembrandta at the Royal Castle in Warsaw.
