Crawford Art Gallery invites you to take a closer look at Rembrandt In Print with this tailor made virtual tour. Enjoy an audio introduction by the Exhibition Curator, An Van camp of Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford. Also deep dive into the 5 main works with Matthew Whyte, Doctoral Researcher, History of Art UCC.

The exhibition is open until the 9th of January 2022. Rembrandt in Print presents 50 of the finest works from the Ashmolean’s world- class collection of over 200 etchings and drypoints by Rembrandt 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 will present Rembrandt as an unrivalled storyteller through a selection of fifty outstanding prints ranging from 1630 until the late 1650s. These works demonstrate Rembrandt’s inventive techniques and extraordinary skills. They are displayed together for the first time. While most other contemporary printmakers made prints of historical, religious or mythological subjects, Rembrandt delighted in presenting everyday scenes.

The exhibition includes a range of these images such as intimate family studies, a selection of confronting life-drawn nudes and carefully detailed characters observed on the streets of his native Leiden, including peasants, Ringball players and the repugnant Rat Catcher (1632).

Come to the gallery and visit in person. Bring along your magnifying glass!
