Around 1500, portraiture flourished like never before. Throughout Europe, major Renaissance artists such as Antonello da Messina, Hans Memling, Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein the Younger, and Sofonisba Anguissola produced lifelike portraits at the highest artistic level. Not only did they immortalise royalty and nobility, but for the first time in history increasing numbers of wealthy merchants, renowned scholars, and others with status, power, and ambition were painted as well. Presented by the Rijksmuseum, ‘Remember Me’ unites international masterpieces with surprising, lesser-known works to tell the personal stories of the individuals portrayed.
