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 Museum Gouda the focus lies on themes from the Old testament.
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.
