Rembrandt’s First Masterpiece

Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver

Completed when he was just twenty-three years old, Rembrandt’s Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver has long been recognized as the artist’s first mature work, his first masterpiece. The painting demonstrates many of the characteristics that would come to define Rembrandt’s style: dramatic lighting, a rhythmic harmony of composition, and his exceptional ability to convey the emotional drama of a scene. Long held in a British private collection, the painting will be shown in the United States for the first time at the Morgan in Rembrandt’s First Masterpiece. Read more…

This exhibition is made possible, in part, by a cultural grant from the Netherland-America Foundation.

Charles W. Engelhard Curator and Department Head, Department of Prints and Drawings

The Morgan Library and Museum

Hans Memling: Portraiture, Piety, and a Reunited Altarpiece

Triptych of Jan Crabbe

Completed around 1470 in Bruges, Hans Memling'sTriptych of Jan Crabbe was dismembered in the 18th century and has never before been reconstructed for an American audience. Two panels from the altarpiece are among the finest paintings owned by the Morgan Library & Museum, where they have long been on permanent view in Pierpont Morgan’s Study. This exhibition brings together the scattered elements of the famous triptych, reuniting the Morgan inner wings with the central panel now owned by the Musei Civici in Vicenza, Italy, and the outer wings from the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium.
