Rembrandt’s Social Network will showcase a number of artworks focused on the artists relationships and the role they had in his work and life. He was an active man with a big social network and partly because of them he was able to become the genius he was.

A few key figures in his life were his old friend Jan Lievens, his savior Abraham Francen and of course his wife and her family, the Uylenburghs. The works include rarely seen paintings, drawings and prints, giving an intimate look into his private life.
