We are saddened to announce the passing of Ernst van de Wetering on August 11, 2021 in Amsterdam. As a leading Rembrandt scholar, he was among the founding members of the RRP Rembrandt Research Project (1968) and brought it to completion with volumes Five and Six (2014). He was Professor of Art History at the University of Amsterdam, and among his honors, he was Slade Professor of Fine Art at Oxford University (2002-2003), Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion, and recipient of the Silver Museum Medal of the City of Amsterdam.
In anticipation of a fuller obituary to be posted at a later date, we invite our members to submit reminiscences about Ernst van de Wetering. Please send to Amy Golahny: firstname.lastname@example.org.
