Amy Mullins returns to the airwaves. The Guardian Australia's Graham Readfearn delves into the latest global environment news, including a mass coral bleaching event happening across the Americas, UNESCO's determination on the health of the Great Barrier Reef, Antarctic sea ice at historic lows, and more. The NGV’s Cathy Leahy, Senior Curator of Prints & Drawings and Conservator of Paintings Caitlin Breare join Amy to discuss their exhibition, Rembrandt: True to Life, featuring the work of 17th century Dutch master, Rembrandt van Rijn. They give us insights into Rembrandt's fascinating life, his print-making, oil paintings, and drawing practice, as well as the pioneering materials and techniques he used. We discuss several of Rembrandt''s works in the exhibition and what they tell us about him. With more than 100 etchings from the NGV Collection, alongside important paintings and loans from across the world, Rembrandt: True to Life is the most comprehensive exhibition of Rembrandt’s work to be held in Australia in 25 years. Open until 10 September at the NGV International.
