With this temporary exhibit, the museum presents to the public a significant part of this vast collection, centered on the print work by Rembrandt. Tireless experimenter, careful investigator of the human soul, Rembrandt is one of the most important Dutch masters, already acclaimed by his contemporaries for the extraordinary newness of his print work, more so than his pictorial work.
The proposed expository route presents the greatness of the artist not only through his own etchings, but also in comparison to other Flemish, Dutch and Italian masters who were working during those same years, to artists that interpreted in print Rembrandt’s paintings, and to others that copied his prints, even on request by refined collectors.

The exhibition brings together a selection of works by Robert Rauschenberg from the series "Cardboards", "Venetians", "Early Egyptians", "Hoarfrosts" and "Jammers". Those works were created between 1970 and 1976 in Israel, France, Italy, India and reflect Rauschenberg‘s great interest about foreign cultures. On its third stage, after Porto and Monaco, Napoli hosts the exhibition from October 22, on the artist’s birthday. The organization of this great international project, edited by Mirta Di Argenzio, is by the Fundação de Serralves, Museu de Arte Contemporânea Porto and co-produced by the Haus der Kunst and the Museum of Contemporary Art Woman Queen of Naples.
