Rembrandt in America 

When: Oct. 30-Jan. 22 2012
Price: $12-$18

This much-anticipated blockbuster show features 47 works by the Dutch master Rembrandt culled from American collections. Anchored by three key self-portraits, the show's overall focus is on the murky and triumphant realm of collecting such a famous and influential artist's work. Twenty-seven of the works in the exhibition are "autograph Rembrandts"; others are thought by curators to have come from his brush, but that attribution comes with degrees of doubt. The NCMA actually has a long history with the artist's work; noted Rembrandt expert William Valentiner directed the museum in the 1950s and oversaw the acquisition of two paintings, which curators later attributed to other artists. This show offers not only the opportunity to admire the beauty and skill of Rembrandt's work, it also provides a view behind the curtain of the attribution and verification of multimillion-dollar works of art. Lectures and events throughout the fall celebrate and delve into details of the master's work. Co-organized by the NCMA with the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, this show has been five years in the making, and its only East Coast stop is in Raleigh. The exhibit continues through Jan. 22, 2012. —Chris Vitiello
