Rembrandt Etchings: States, Fakes, and Restrikes

Self Portrait of the artist in velvet plumed cap.

May 6 - June 26, 2011 

Probably the most imitated artist in history, the etchings of Rembrandt van Rijn underwent several states by the artist’s own hand.  The engraving plates were re-struck creating less valuable editions after Rembrandt’s death, and there are innumerable forgeries on the market.  This exhibition explores Rembrandt’s etchings and the history of restrikes and forgeries.
