Rembrandt in the Rockies
The Denver Art Museum’s newest exhibition, Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, brings over 100 paintings, prints, and drawings by the 17th century Dutch master together for the first time. The show—on view September 16, 2018 through January 6, 2019—commemorates the 350th anniversary of the artist’s death.
“Our visitors will see that Rembrandt was a remarkable storyteller through the finest impressions of his prints available worldwide,” says Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM. From self-portraits and portraits, to landscapes, still lifes, allegorical and biblical subjects, the works span Rembrandt’s career, offering radiant examples of Rembrandt’s innovative skill and sensitivity with etching, drypoint, and engraving techniques.
Denver is the sole venue for Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, organized by the DAM and co-curated by Dr. Timothy J. Standring and Dr. Jaco Rutgers.
