Rembrandt the Printmaker

Overview

Rembrandt was the most original printmaker of all time. In no fewer than 300 images, he covered the full range of styles and subjects for which he is celebrated, including self-portraits, scenes from the Bible, vignettes of every day, and character studies. Rembrandt was famously experimental, and often reworked his copper plates to improve and extend their expressive power, creating startlingly modern results.

Overview

Rembrandt was the most original printmaker of all time. In no fewer than 300 images, he covered the full range of styles and subjects for which he is celebrated, including self-portraits, scenes from the Bible, vignettes of every day, and character studies. Rembrandt was famously experimental, and often reworked his copper plates to improve and extend their expressive power, creating startlingly modern results.

Rembrandt the Printmaker, compiled by three leading authorities on Rembrandt, and published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) and British Museum (London), aims to illustrate a selection of his finest prints. Exciting new areas of research have opened up in recent years, making it possible to follow the progress of Rembrandt's work on each plate and also revealing details of his habit of revising the images at various times throughout his life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the very thorough catalog of a major international show of Rembrandt's prints that resulted from combining holdings at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the British Museum in London. Written by leading experts from both countries, it is sure to become the new standard, not because of radical analysis or unorthodox approach but because of its completeness. Although there is some new information based on "soft" paper radiography, the authors openly acknowledge their debt to earlier catalogs. Despite the title, the book focuses more on the prints themselves and how they were made than on biography. However, much can be extracted from learning precisely how this artist went about his craft. Though filled with clear, excellent illustrations, this well-documented book has much technical detail that will be of greater interest to printmakers and art historians than casual readers. Still, this is an important reference for libraries of all kinds and is highly recommended for academic and art school libraries.

The book begins with 80 pages of critical work: Ger Luijten's "Rembrandt the Printmaker: the Shaping of an Oeuvre," Erik Hinterding's "Watermark Research as a Tool for the Study of Rembrandt's etchings," Ernst van de Wetering's "Remarks on Rembrandt's Oil-sketches for Etchings" and Martin Royalton-Kisch's "The Role of Drawings in Rembrandt's Printmaking." Thereafter comes the incredible catalog of 90 works with extended discussion of each one. A bibliography, a list of exhibitions from the sixties to the nineties, a gallery of watermarks used to date Rembrandt's work, and a concordance of Bartsch and Hind numbers round out this volume.
