The Rijksmuseum and Sound & Vision Publishers have the pleasure of inviting you to a presentation to celebrate the recent publication of the seven volumes dedicated to Rembrandt’s etchings in the New Hollstein Dutch series, compiled by Erik Hinterding and Jaco Rutgers. The result of several years of work, this new publication—the 19th such complete catalogue of the artist’s prints—contains many new insights into an oeuvre that has had a huge impact on the history of printmaking.
This event will take place on Thursday, 16 January 2014 in the auditorium of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to the Information desk in the entrance area of the Rijksmuseum on 16 January.
