Rembrandt in Zagreb

Until 15 February 103 etches made by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn can been admired in Zagreb's Museum for Arts and Crafts. Rembrandt's paintings are often too expensive to be moved around, but his etches are easier to transport. Most of them are quite small - you could cover one with your hand - and they come from nearby: the Landesmuseum Joanneum in Graz.
After this exhibition the etches will be put in a dark storage for the next two years. If you miss this exhibition the only places to see a Rembrandt in Zagreb are the Mimara Museum and the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters. You will have ample opportunity to study the paintings, as the museums are usually deserted.
