Long Live Rembrandt was an exhibition of 575 works, including 96 versions of The Night Watch, 132 portraits of Rembrandt, and 253 works by children. Each and every one was inspired by Rembrandt, and all 575 were selected by an expert jury from the more than 8,300 submissions.

Gerda Dapper, Long Live Rembrandt artist: This exhibition just fills you with energy. I got talking to a contributor from Germany who described it perfectly: it’s a Gesamtkunstwerk, a total work of art! We all became friends in this short period of time.
