The exhibition Rembrandt in Black and White shows etchings of the master from a private collection. It is the first time this collection is on display in its entirety. The exhibition will travel to five different locations, with a different focus for each location.
In the Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom (3 August-10 November 2013) etchings showing landscapes will get special attention. Rembrandt started later in his career with making landscapes. For this particular genre he used the drypoint needle, with which the depiction was scratched into the etching plate. This makes for a smaller edition and therefore these etchings are rare.
Rembrandt van Rijn is mostly known for his paintings, but in his days he was appreciated highly among his colleagues for his etchings as well. His total oeuvre of etchings is estimated to be around 290 pieces. A representative part is on show in this exhibition.
