Greenaway To Direct Rembrandt Film

Wednesday 9th February 2005 @ 14:39 GMT

Peter Greenaway is in the process of scripting a new film about Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn, which he will also direct. Entitled Nightwatching, the film will focus on the gestation and process of painting The Nightwatch, Rembrandt’s most famous work, which has been described as "recapitulation of the ideals of Rembrandt's first ten Amsterdam years, and is the last painting in which he strives for brilliant external effects.” Rembrandt’s wife and three of his four children died whilst the piece was being painted.

The film was instigated by the Dutch Kasander Film Company, and will be released in May 2006 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the artist. Greenaway (a painter and artist himself) will design a special installation for the Rijksmuseum, where it will stand next to the original Nightwatch painting. This work will be unveiled upon the film’s release.

This will be Greenaway’s first full-length film since his ill-fated, hugely ambitious Tulse Luper project.
