Before the world started watching “talkies” in the late 1920s, silent film had just established itself as a higher art form.

Maybe you have noticed the backwards M in the logo of the current exhibition Rembrandt in America. It's not a typo.
Rembrandt in America is now on view at The Cleveland Museum of Art through May 28. You may know the artist’s name, but the exhibition offers the opportunity to explore his life and work and to understand why collecting his work in America was so important.
This is the first of a series of blogs that will dig deeper into topics related to the exhibition. We’ll start with offering 3 lenses to view the exhibition.
We’re excited that Cleveland will finally be able to experience what more than 150,000 people traveled to N.C. to see. Rembrandt in America will open at the museum on Feb. 19. This exhibition will be the first major exhibition to explore in depth the collecting of Rembrandt paintings in America.
