20 OF THE ARTIST ETCHINGS NEVER BEFORE SEEN TOGETHER
TO HIGHLIGHT ART BASEL SEASON, OPENING NOV. 29 FOR EXTENDED EXHIBIT THROUGH MARCH 31ST. AT NAOMI WILZIG'S WORLD EROTIC ART MUSEUM
In an extraordinary exhibit that will showcase what historians, curators and collectors have for centuries declared the iconic Dutch artist’s “dirty little secrets,” twenty etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn (1609-69) will be unveiled all together for the first time at a reception, Tuesday, November 29, at 8 P.M. at Naomi Wilzig’s World Erotic Art Museum. Curated by The Baron of Fulwood & Dirleton and Naomi Wilzig, assisted by David Tamargo, the etchings will be on view at the museum’s new Rembrandt Gallery through Saturday, March 31, 2011.
An Assemblage of the only existing erotic etchings illustrating Rembrandt’s masterful technique, the exhibit will offer a provocative new perspective on the artist deemed by many as “one of the greatest prophets of civilization.” Titles of the etching such as “Adam and Eve,” “A Man Making Water” (1631) and “Woman Sitting Half Dressed Besides a Stove” (1658), meld the earthly with the spiritual, and are among the nudes, biblical, and Greek mythological studies which will be on display in an exhibit anticipated to be among the most hard sought museum tickets of the season.
The World Erotic Art Museum is located at 1205 Washington Avenue and is open Monday through Thursday 11am-10pm. Tickets are $15. No one under 18 admitted. Further information is available by calling 305-532-9336, or www.weam.com
