Rembrandt to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the Armand Hammer Collection October 15, 2023–January 21, 2024

“An all-star extravaganza of outstanding art” —PaperCity

Rembrandt to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the Armand Hammer Collection showcases the renowned collection of the Hammer Museum at UCLA. Major works of art from across four centuries reflect the collecting interests of Armand Hammer (1898–1990), founder of the Los Angeles museum.

Highlights of the exhibition include paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries by Titian with Portrait of a Man in Armor, and Rembrandt with Juno, a depiction of the Roman goddess of wealth and an outstanding example of Rembrandt’s late style.

The Armand Hammer Collection also contains significant works by renowned 19th-century French artists such as Camille Corot, Honoré Daumier, and Gustave Moreau; and Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

The exhibition presents three works by Vincent van Gogh, including his iconic 1889 view, through a stand of pine trees, of the hospital at Saint-Rémy, where he painted some of his greatest and best-known works.

Rembrandt to Van Gogh offers a special opportunity to see these great works of art, shown together outside Los Angeles for the first time in this century.
