20 Oct 2006-8 Jan 2007. Sixty-four drawings by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) are on show in this exhibition at the Louvre marking the 400th anniversary of the artist's birth.

Drawn mainly from public collections in France (the Louvre, cole nationale des beaux-arts, the museums of Besanon and Grenoble), the exhibition also has some pieces on loan from the Frits Lugt private collection. An exhibition catalogue is available for 29. Admission 9.50. Permanent collection & exhibition 13, after 18.00, 11. Weds-Mon 09.00-18.00, Weds & Fri 09.00-22.00.
