The Rembrandt tart Instagram competition

The masters of tart meet the masters of art

This summer, Bourke Street Bakery teams up with the Art Gallery of NSW to create a modern homage to the Dutch golden age. A special creation inspired by the spice trade of the period, the Rembrandt tart decadently combines spiced custard and crumbled macaroon.

It’s a feast for the senses in celebration of the exhibition Rembrandt and the Dutch golden age: masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum. Discover a time of unparalleled wealth, power and cultural confidence, when the art of painting flourished like never before. Featuring outstanding works from the great Dutch painters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer, this sumptuous exhibition is in Sydney for a limited time only.

The Rembrandt tart is available exclusively at Bourke Street Bakery for the duration of the exhibition: 11 November 2017 – 18 February 2018.
