Beloved for his paintings,
Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669)
is equally famous for the extraordinary creativity in his etchings
and drawings. From his teens until his death at age 63,
Rembrandt explored in graphic art the most intimate human observations
as well as the most formal representations of his own self-portraits;
scenes of his family and ordinary life around him; fresh visions
of landscape in panorama and in detail; portraits of friends
and dignitaries; as well as grand biblical histories and
touching reinterpretations of religious stories. The National
Gallery of Art has one of this country's greatest collections
of these works. Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt's
birth, the National Gallery presents its masterworks, combined
with a few outstanding loans from American private collections.
Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
