Rembrandt van Rijn and Saskia Uylenburgh form the leitmotif of an exhibition on high-society marriages in the 17th century. More than 250 objects relate how joy and sorrow were shared in those days. Attention is paid to all aspects of love, from early courtship and lavish weddings to the darker sides of marriage such as child mortality and adultery. A total of 23 works by the Dutch master are featured in Rembrandt & Saskia: Love in the Dutch Golden Age, which is open to the public from 24 November 2018 to 17 March 2019 in the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden.
