DIA Shows "Rembrandt and the face of Jesus"

Rembrandt changed the way artists depicted Jesus starting in the 17th Century. Some of the Dutch master's works are coming to Detroit for an exhibition called "Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus". It includes more than 60 works of art, including the recently-restored "Supper at Emmaus", Rembrandt's interpretation of Jesus appearing to his followers after his resurrection. WDET's Pat Batcheller talked about the exhibition with Salvadort Salort-Pons, curator of European paintings at the DIA. Click the audio link above to hear the conversation.

"Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus" runs from November 20th through February 12th at the DIA. For more information, visit the museum's web site
