In an exhibition entitled Virtuosity and Imagination: Rembrandt Etchings from Boijmans’s Collection, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will show more than eighty objects, including sixty of Rembrandt’s finest prints. There will also be reprints and copies of his work, as well as prints that were a source of inspiration for him. Rembrandt’s prints are exceptional in their spontaneous line, extraordinary handling of light and extensive use of drypoint.
After a recent restoration and conservation project, this special selection of landscape prints, genre scenes, portraits, self-portraits and religious scenes will be exhibited for the first time. Highlights include Landscape with Three Farmhouses by a Track, St Jerome by a Pollard Willow and The Three Crosses, one of his most experimental works.
