Rembrandt in Print

1 June – 15 September 2019

The Ashmolean Museum holds a world class collection of over 200 prints made by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606-1669). Widely hailed as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age, Rembrandt was also one of the most innovative and experimental printmakers of the seventeenth century.

This exhibition will present Rembrandt as an unrivalled storyteller through a selection of around 50 outstanding prints ranging from 1630 until the late 1650s. A variety of subjects will be covered: intense self-portraits, atmospheric landscapes, intimate family portraits, biblical stories and confronting nude studies. Almost drawing-like in appearance, these images were created by combining spontaneous squiggly lines with his remarkable sense for detail.

Exhibition organised by the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.
