Britain’s Discovery of the Master, an exclusive new exhibition that will only be shown in Edinburgh, reveals how the taste for Rembrandt’s work in Britain evolved over the past 400 years.

From early beginnings around 1630, it grew into a mania that gripped collectors and art lovers across the country, reaching a fever pitch in the late-eighteenth century. The exhibition also reveals the profound impact of Rembrandt’s art on the British imagination, by exploring the wide range of native artists whose work has been inspired by him, over four centuries, right up to the present day.

This landmark exhibition showcases major works by the legendary Dutch Master alongside those of the many British artists he inspired, such as William Hogarth, Joshua Reynolds, Henry Raeburn, David Wilkie, Jacob Epstein, John Bellany, and Frank Auerbach.
