The opportunity to see a Rembrandt exhibition at Gainsborough’s House is drawing to a close as the display nears its finish.

Sunday marks the last chance for people to visit the popular Rembrandt the Printmaker exhibition in Sudbury.

The display, which features works on loan from the British Museum and the Fitzwilliam Museum, has been open for the last five months.

It explores the Dutch artist’s achievements in the medium, which inspired generations of print makers, including Thomas Gainsborough.

The director of Gainsborough’s House, Mark Bills, said the exhibition had proved popular with visitors.

“We are delighted with the success of this exhibition and are so thrilled by the number of people who have visited over the summer and autumn months,” he said.

“To coincide with Rembrandt the Printmaker, we have shown films about the artist and carried out printmaking demonstrations to give visitors a rare chance to see how Rembrandt created these great etchings.”
