Description: REMBRANDT ETCHINGS: Rembrandt, one of the most influential printmakers in the history of art, created etchings that offer a wide range of subjects, from incisive representations of scriptures to studies of street life. His prints possess comedy as well as sober social commentary and have influenced innumerable later printmakers. This exhibition of 40 Rembrandt etchings examine the problem of authenticating Rembrandt’s etchings. The exhibition includes first state pulls from the artist’s lifetime and restrike prints from the 17th to 20th century.
