A compelling reconsideration of Rembrandt's printed oeuvre based on new research into the artist's life and work

As a pioneering printmaker, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) stood apart from his contemporaries thanks to his innovative approach to composition and his skillful rendering of space and light. He worked with the medium as a vehicle for artistic expression and experimentation, causing many to proclaim him the greatest etcher of all time. Moreover, the dissemination of the artist's prints outside of the Dutch Republic during his lifetime contributed greatly to establishing Rembrandt's reputation throughout Europe.

Sumptuously illustrated with comparative paintings and drawings as well as prints, this important volume draws on exciting new scholarship on Rembrandt's etchings. Authors Jaco Rutgers and Timothy J. Standring examine the artist's prints from many angles. They reveal how Rembrandt intentionally varied the states of his etchings, printed them on exotic papers, and retouched prints by hand to create rarities for a clientele that valued unique impressions.
