The elegant proportions and architectural detail of Alumni Memorial Hall’s restored galleries provide an elegant backdrop for works including Rembrandt’s arresting self-portrait Rembrandt in Velvet Cap and Plume, drawn by the artist in 1638. A recent acquisition anchors the gallery: the massive and moving painting The Dead Soldier by English artist Joseph Wright of Derby. Nearby, an exploration of the decorative arts in the 18th century keeps company with probing portraits from England, the Continent, and North America.
