(MTI) – The government has earmarked 505 million forints (EUR 1.6m) to support a major exhibition opening on Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age in the Budapest Fine Arts Museum this autumn, according to a recent decree.
The large-scale exhibition opening on November 1 will present 170 works by the greatest Dutch masters from the 17th century, the museum told MTI.
It will show 20 canvases by Rembrandt including his earliest and last paintings, the museum said.
Other highlights of the exhibition will include three iconic pieces by Johannes Vermeer, The Geographer, The Astronomer and The Allegory of Faith. They will be on loan from Frankfurt, the Louvre of Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Out of the exhibition’s six sections, one will be dedicated solely to Rembrandt, the museum said.
