Rembrandt #nofilter

Don’t forget to join us in marking the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death with our Rembrandt #nofilter display in the Dining Room Lobby.

If you’re visiting during 4 October – 12 January, we are commemorating this special anniversary with a free, temporary display exploring the artist’s celebrated Self-portrait with Two Circles alongside a new digital artwork, generated through visitors’ selfies. The display is generously supported by The Friends of Kenwood, Art Lighting Partner: TM Lighting.
