Temporary exhibition “Rembrandt and the Bible”

Rembrandt is in town! More than 70 engravings by the Dutch master tell the story of the Bible in 45 episodes at the International Museum of the Reformation in Geneva.

In partnership with the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de Genève (MAH), the International Museum of the Reformation in Geneva will present more than 70 engravings on religious and biblical themes by the great Dutch artist from 30 November 2023 to 7 April 2024 (the exhibition has been extended).

Entitled “Rembrandt and the Bible“, the exhibition illuminates the painter’s deeply personal relationship to religion and its representations.

Since reopening this spring after two years of renovation, the MIR has seen a 20% increase in the number of visitors.
