REMBRANDT

AND THE ART OF ENGRAVING

This exhibition featured 90 original engravings by Rembrandt, which belong to the collection of the Rembrandt House Museum, in Amsterdam. Aiming to show the artist’s ingeniousness in the use of the techniques of etching and drypoint, the curators Ed de Heer and Pieter Tjabbes carefully selected pieces that enabled the viewers to appreciate how the artist innovated the technique by using more pictorial effects than lines. Biblical themes, landscapes, everyday scenes and portraits made by this ingenious artist were displayed with two original printing plates and a set of forty prints made by his predecessors and successors. Curated by Ed de Heer and Pieter Tjabbes.
