Carrara Academy, Piazza G. Carrara 82 – Bergamo
With the exceptional loan of Rembrandt’s youthful self-portrait from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Carrara Academy of Bergamo inaugurates a new appointment dedicated to great European painting from 9 July.
A special occasion that offers the opportunity to get to know the Dutch artists of the museum, in a new dedicated setting, and allows you to explore the themes of portrait, self-portrait and self-research.
The young Rembrandt observes the viewer, partially emerging from the shadows with disheveled hair. Meeting his gaze is pure emotion.
Two multimedia interventions by NEO [Narrative Environments Operas] enrich the exhibition itinerary.
A narrative environment aims to return the figure of Rembrandt as an artist and as a man, through a story in the first person, elaborated starting from what is historically known.

Close to the youth self-portrait, a second video traces the life of the master showing his self-portraits in sequence: an opportunity to appreciate the evolution of the way of representing oneself, both in posture and lighting, as well as in material rendering.
