About the Film

My Rembrandt is set in the world of the Old Masters and offers a mosaic of gripping stories in which unrestrained passion for Rembrandt’s paintings leads to dramatic developments and unexpected plot turns. While art collectors such as Eijk and Rose-Marie De Mol van Otterloo, the American Thomas Kaplan and the Scottish Duke of Buccleuch show us their special connection with ‘their’ Rembrandt, French baron Eric de Rothschild puts two Rembrandts up for sale, triggering a hard political battle between the Rijksmuseum and the Louvre.

The film also follows aristocratic Dutch art dealer Jan Six as he seems to be on the trail of not just one but two ‘new’ Rembrandt paintings. This nerve-wracking journey of discovery seems to be the realization of his biggest boyhood dream. But when he is accused of having violated an agreement with another art dealer, his world looks about to collapse.

The film My Rembrandt allows us a fascinating insight into what makes the work of this Dutch master painter so special and why his work touches so deeply.

Following the success of her award-winning documentary The New Rijksmuseum (2014) film director Oeke Hoogendijk has once again taken on a great subject to tell us a captivating tale of art and art lovers.
