An authority on 17th-century Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn is speaking at Hope College in southwestern Michigan.
Ernst van de Wetering is to deliver a lecture Wednesday titled "Rembrandt's Thinking: His Ideas about Light and Shadow." The free event is at the Holland school's Winants Auditorium of Graves Hall.
Van de Wetering is chairman of the Rembrandt Research Project, started in 1968 to help separate Rembrandt's paintings from the large number of similar works made by his apprentices and followers.
The event's sponsors are the West Michigan Chapter of the Netherland America Foundation, the Holland Museum, the Dutch Heritage Coordinating Council, Jim and Donna Brooks, and Hope College's art department.
