Learning and Teaching with Rembrandt: Cross-Disciplinary Approaches to the Master Etcher

Symposium: 28 October 2017

N.B. due to unforeseen circumstances, the date for this program has been changed to 28 October 2017

This daylong symposium will examine how both pedagogical approaches and increased watermarks data for Rembrandt’s prints can be used along with traditional connoisseurship to answer questions about Rembrandt as a printmaker–and raise new ones. Speakers will discuss cross-disciplinary projects and collaborative research in academic collections, and how they extend the reach of existing knowledge about Rembrandt’s practice. A panel discussion will explore the teaching of Rembrandt’s prints from a variety of perspectives in different settings, including the university, the encyclopedic museum, and the conservation studio.

Registration is free; contact Elizabeth Saggese at or 607-254-4642 to reserve a space.
