Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn has been called one of the greatest painters of all time. This UNC-TV original production, Rembrandt in America, weaves together a biographical and historical detective story that seeks to determine what is and what is not an authentic Rembrandt painting. Produced in association with the North Carolina Museum of Art, The Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the 30-minute documentary explores the multiple attributions given to Rembrandt's paintings ("autograph, workshop of, circle of, and follower of"), and is illustrated with exquisite examples from the NCMA's special exhibition, "Rembrandt in America." Curators George Keyes, Dennis Weller, Tom Rassieur, and Jon Seydl, and NCMA's Director, Larry Wheeler, invite you to become a Rembrandt connoisseur by comparing, contrasting and contemplating some of Rembrandt's greatest paintings.
