De negerin van Rembrandt

Duo exhibition with Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) at Kunsthal Rotterdam, 2007.
The director of Kunsthal, Wim Pijbes, invited me to make a series based on Rembrandt’s etching La negresse couchée, 1658 and to do the research if the woman depicted in the etching was really African or might have been European. The presentation consists of eight black and white photographs together with the original etching.
In the recent exhibition All the Rembrandts at the Rijksmuseum the title has been changed from La negresse couchée into Reclining Female Nude.
