hyperallergic Rembrandt, “The Artist in his Studio” (ca. 1626), oil on canvas, 25 x 32 cm, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (via wikimedia.org)
Rembrandt got old and poor and sad but he never got timid, as the 70 or so paintings on the walls of Late Rembrandt demonstrate (Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum, through May 17). While his early works were often small — such as Boston’s “Artist in his Studio” (1629) — only a few of these late paintings contain a figure that’s anything under life size. His brushwork also went big. Even early on, Rembrandt was interested in the potential of paint, applying it in juicy brushstrokes and scratching into it when wet with the butt end of his brush (see the floorboards in the “Artist in his Studio”). However, in the late works, those from about 1650 to his death in 1669, the paint becomes as much a protagonist as the figures he constructs with it.

hyperallergic An image of Claire Gottfried from Patrícia Monteiro’s’ Life Ever After’ series (image courtesy Patrícia Monteiro)
Sooner or later, we all wake up to wrinkles and gray hair. Yet what’s most frightening about aging isn’t necessarily the sagging skin or stiff joints, but the prospect of growing invisible to society — that people will somehow stop really seeing you.

It was in hopes of casting a more loving and empathetic spotlight on the elderly that Patrícia Monteiro created her series Life Ever After, which invites audiences into the lives of old women who live in Manhattan and still walk its streets every day. Though most have lost their spouses, their days are still full. One image captures 86-year-old Sonia Goldstein applying powder to her cheek as she prepares to meet a friend for dinner and a play on the Lower East Side. Another shows Chelsea resident Claire Gottfried slurping down the last drops of milk from a bowl of cereal she’s methodically prepared for breakfast.

hyperallergic Over the course of six weeks and with a cast of hundreds, a Belgian theater company seized control of over six miles of streets in the city of Mons to stage surreal spectacles including flying kayakers, crowds of angels, and a taxidermy deer transforming into a donkey. The resulting work, Mons Street Review, is an online experience sourced from these performances, all captured with a 360-degree camera riffing on the style of Google Street View. 2d
