The Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, Ireland, have recently opened their latest exhibition Rembrandt in Print.

According to their website:

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. 

Rembrandt in Print is accompanied by a special Print Studio in collaboration with Cork Printmakers. 

The exhibition will run from 17th September 2021 till 9th January 2022.


While you're there, make sure you go and take a glance at this brilliant unfinished George Romney. It was hanging by the staircase the last time I visited the gallery.
