Rembrandt: master etchings from the collection of Tobia and Dr. Morton Mower

Exhibition: 26 February - 23 May 2010

From the museum website, 17 March 2010

This exhibition showcases 34 rare etchings loaned by Baltimore cardiologist Dr. Morton Mower and his wife, Tobia Mower, whose fascination with Rembrandt’s innovative techniques and mastery of printmaking led to the formation of their extraordinary private collection. The selection explores the versatility of Rembrandt’s style as well as the breadth of his subjects, which range from scenes of daily life, portraits, landscapes, and historical and biblical narratives. As Dr. Mower has noted, “Etching was the photography of Rembrandt’s day, and he gives us a window into both the everyday life and cosmopolitan themes that captured his imagination.”
