In his day, Rembrandt was better known as an etcher than as a painter. Looking at Rembrandt's prints requires a little time and patience from the viewer, but the rewards are enormous. Rembrandt moved expertly between genres, demonstrating his ingenuity, insight into human emotion and mastery of the etching medium in every image. The compositions are beautifully balanced despite a wealth of narrative detail. Every line has a purpose - nothing is accidental or left to chance.
Rembrandt Etchings is an accessible book that will guide you on your visual journey of discovery, and allow you to see why Rembrandt was the greatest of all 17th-century printmakers.

The book contains 33 high-quality illustrations.
Written by the Dutch art historian Michiel Kersten, an expert in the field of Dutch 17th century art. He will lead you by the hand and will unveil the many hidden secrets of Rembrandt etchings.
