Rembrandt in Southern California / Online / Art

California’s obsession with Rembrandt started in 1938, when J. Paul Getty purchased Portrait of Marten Looten.

In collaboration, the Hammer, the Getty, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum, and the Timken are coming together for an unprecedented online exhibition.
