The 400th anniversary of the birth of Rembrandt (1606-1669) is the occasion to celebrate the work of one of the greatest artists of all time . Rembrandt was the first modern etcher, producing more than 300 prints over a period of 40 years. A selection of 60 prints from the outstanding collection at the BM has been made for this new Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition to highlight the whole range of his work, including self-portraits, biblical scenes, landscapes and character studies.
