Rembrandt-200Rembrandt’s Changing Impressions, on view through December 12, is curated by art history PhD candidate Robert Fucci. This extraordinary project highlights Rembrandt’s most dramatically altered prints. It gathers 52 seventeenth-century impressions from 14 major U.S. collections to best examine his manipulations and transformations, and is an unprecedented opportunity to examine the range, power, and nuance of Rembrandt’s fine prints. A fully illustrated, 160-page catalogue, co-published by The Wallach Art Gallery and Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln is available for $35.

This exhibition and related programming received generous support from the Netherland-America Foundation, the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York, the IFPDA Foundation, and the European Institute at Columbia University. We are especially grateful for our collaboration with the European Institute and the Department of Art History and Archaeology in presenting this symposium.
