Join artist and tutor, Nick Pearson for Rembrandt’s Light exhibition tour at the Dulwich Picture Gallery October 2019 – February 2020.

One of the greatest painters ever (and one of Nick’s favourites!). This exhibition celebrates 350 years since Rembrandt’s death with 35 of his iconic paintings, etchings and drawings, including major international loans from the Louvre and the Rijksmuseum. The exhibition focuses on the period from 1639 to 1658, when Rembrandt lived at Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam and created some of his most exceptional work.

*This was a small but beautifully formed exhibition (and even smaller after the attempted theft of two of the paintings, which had to be returned!). Nick will therefore add a few more Rembrandt gems from other international collections into the mix.

Please contact Nick directly on connie.spark@btopenworld.com and he’ll let you know how to pay the fee into his account or where to send a cheque, to secure your place. If you don’t have or have never used Zoom,  let Nick know and he can show you how to download it and get started very easily.

Nick’s Rembrandt’s Light Exhibition tour takes the form of illustrated slide lectures. If you sign up, you’ll be sent a pdf with high-resolution images that you can easily flick through on screen, or print out and follow as he takes to the floor on Zoom, with projected images on his studio wall. These projected, filmed and transmitted images won’t be as sharp as those he’ll be sending you on the pdf, but will allow him to point things out as he speaks, in an attempt to make the presentation as much like a live lecture as possible.

About the Tutor

Nick Pearson is an internationally exhibited contemporary artist whose practice encompasses sculpture, drawing and photographic work. His simple interventions and appropriations of the familiar things that surround us (made uncanny by way of his approach and working practices) deal with the language, the possible associations and the status of ‘ordinary’ objects. Nick first studied on the Art & Design Foundation Course at Leeds (Jacob Kramer) College of Art and continued his studies at The Polytechnic Wolverhampton and Stourbridge College of Art.

He lectures on modern art and design history and runs other, short art & design units at London College of Contemporary Arts, OPEN Ealing and Richmond Adult Community College.
