AMSTERDAM (AP) — For the first time, and likely the last, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is showing off all of its works by Rembrandt van Rijn in a single exhibition.

From imposing portraits to intimate sketches and prints that usually lie safely cocooned in climate-controlled storage, the Amsterdam museum is exhibiting 22 paintings, 60 drawings and 300 of its best etchings in the blockbuster show.

The museum actually owns 1,300 prints, but is showing only the best in the exhibition, "All the Rembrandts," that opens Friday.

It is part of a raft of shows at museums across the Netherlands this year to mark the 350th anniversary of the artist's death.

The Rijksmuseum show gives an unprecedented overview of Rembrandt's progression from precocious young artist to the master of the Golden Age.
