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┬ádaylong symposium┬áwill examine how both pedagogical approaches and increased watermarks data for Rembrandt’s prints┬ácan be used along with traditional connoisseurship to answer questions about Rembrandt as a printmaker–and raise new ones.┬áSpeakers will discuss cross-disciplinary projects and collaborative research in academic collections, and how they extend the┬áreach of existing knowledge about Rembrandt’s practice. A panel discussion will explore the teaching of Rembrandt’s prints from a┬ávariety 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.
