PHILADELPHIA — A new exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art takes a fresh look at religious paintings, drawings and prints by one of history’s most revered artists.

“Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus” debuts Wednesday (August 3) in Philadelphia, after its premiere at the Louvre Museum in Paris. It’s the only U.s. East Coast stop for the exhibit, which runs through Oct. 30. It contains works from museums and private collections in the U.S. and Europe.

The exhibition of more than 50 works by the Dutch master and his pupils includes a group of seven oil paintings of Jesus Christ that have not been together since they left Rembrandt’s studio in 1656. It’s also the first Rembrandt exhibition in Philadelphia since 1932.
