The Ashmolean Museum holds a world-class collection of over 300 prints made by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606–1669). Widely hailed as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age, Rembrandt was also one of the most innovative and experimental printmakers of the seventeenth century.
This touring exhibition presents Rembrandt as an unrivalled storyteller through a selection of around fifty outstanding prints ranging from 1630 until the late 1650s. Displayed together for the first time, these works demonstrate Rembrandt’s inventive techniques and unrivalled ability for storytelling.
