Rembrandt – Auerbach: Raw Truth: Since December 2013, an exhibition of Auerbach’s paintings can be visited in the Rijksmuseum. The exhibition will be open until the 16th of March and is a wonderful way to spend your time in Amsterdam. Frank Auerbach was born in 1931 in Berlin. In 1939, his parents sent him to Britain where he lived in London from 1947 on. Today, he is considered as one of the most important British painters since the Second World War. At the beginning of the 1960s, he became inspired by Rembrandt who used to paint the raw truth, so he started to do the same thing. The picture below shows his painting “Primrose Hill Summer Sunshine” which originated in 1964.
