The Denver Art Museum is the sole venue for Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, showcasing about 100 prints from Rembrandt van Rijn’s career spanning from 1625 to 1665. Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker takes a close look at Rembrandt’s innovative approach to printmaking that combined the three principle methods of intaglio, including etching, drypoint and engraving. New scholarship about the artist is presented, revealing how Rembrandt intentionally varied the states of his prints, ink, and exotic papers to create rarities that he knew his clients desired, demonstrating how he deliberately manipulated his prints for marketing and storytelling purposes.While the exhibition focuses on Rembrandt’s exploration of printmaking, several paintings and 17 drawings also are on view to provide additional context about his creative process in all media. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Timothy J. Standring (Gates Family Foundation Curator at the DAM) and Dr. Jaco Rutgers (leading scholar of Rembrandt prints). An exhibition catalog will be available in the fall of 2018.
