Museum Het Rembrandthuis (The Rembrandt House Museum) in Amsterdam is not just Rembrandt’s former home and workshop; for more than a century it has been a museum with its own collection. The collection consists primarily of works on paper. Rembrandt’s etchings are well represented of course, but the museum also has prints by his predecessors and contemporaries, as well as by modern and contemporary artists who were inspired by Rembrandt. — Museum Het Rembrandthuis
The design of the exhibition is based on three principles: focus, colors and urgency. Focus is displayed by big blow ups of the original etches of Rembrandt; Colors by using four bright colours in each room, one colour per theme; urgency is expressed by using big type for each theme which is based on the importance of reflection and looking ahead on the museum’s own collection.
