Where are They Now? Rembrandt's Juno at the Getty Museum

The Hammer Museum’s splendid late Rembrandt painting is on view at the Getty Museum this fall while our permanent collection galleries undergo renovation. Juno was painted by the artist between 1662 and 1665, just four years before the artist’s death in 1669. The painting was a highlight of the recent Rembrandt: The Late Works exhibition organized by the National Gallery, London and the Riksmuseum, Amsterdam. Los Angeles museum-goers will now get to appreciate the fluidity and élan of Rembrandt’s technique during his final years through an entire gallery at the Getty devoted to that theme.
