Last week, Milwaukee Art Museum opened "Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London." At the same time, the museum's Cafe Calatrava launched a new menu inspired by the show, which runs through Jan. 13.
While the giant photograph showing the exterior of London's Kenwood House may not be enough to transport you to merry old England, the 48 paintings in the show behind it just might do the trick. "Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London," opens at Milwaukee Art Museum on Friday, Oct. 12.
On Saturday, Oct. 27, the Grohmann Museum opened to the public, featuring the sculptures and paintings of Grohmann's expansive collection, "Man at Work."
MAM's "Rembrandt and His Time" exhibit opened Saturday in conjunction with the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt's birth in 2006. Milwaukee is the only venue for this exhibition.
