Dutch Art: Rembrandt and Van Gogh
Educator Michelle Antonisse looks at Dutch art with Rembrandt's Self-Portrait (c. 1636–38) and Vincent van Gogh's Portrait of a Peasant (Patience Escalier) (1888).
The series Spotlight on Art: Videos for Schools offers a closer look at objects from the Norton Simon collections. Featuring 2 to 3 artworks, each video is designed to encourage prolonged looking, reflection and discussion, while also including information about the artist and historical context. What’s more, the series provides an ongoing connection to the Museum for teachers and students from afar. We encourage you to use these videos in combination with our curriculum packets, activity lesson plans, and other related materials provided in the links below.
