New York City.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art (“The Met”) is pleased to present “Rembrandt and Degas: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” on view from February 23rd through May 20th. The exhibition will feature a series of early portraits by the two artists and highlight the Dutch master’s guiding influence on the young French Impressionist. The first exhibition to examine this subject, it will unite some two dozen works by the artists, including oil portraits, drawings, and etchings from the Metropolitan Museum’s collection and other museums in the United States and abroad. The intimate scale of the exhibition and size of the works on display will illuminate the unique kinship that exists between the self-portraits created by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) and Edgar Degas (1834-1917) at the start of their illustrious careers.
