Rembrandt, one of the most influential printmakers in the history of art, created etchings that offer a wide range of subjects, from incisive representations of scriptures to studies of street life. His prints possess comedy as well as sober social commentary and have influenced innumerable later printmakers.
This exhibition of 40 Rembrandt etchings examine the problem of authenticating Rembrandt’s etchings. The exhibition includes first state pulls from the artist’s lifetime and restrike prints from the 17th to 20th century.

“Art and events both have a galvanizing agency—the power to inspire witnesses to contemplation or action. Conversely, momentous events, triumphs and tragedies alike, have long been commemorated in art, from the ancient reliefs on the Arch of Titus in Rome to the French Romantic painter Theodore Gericault’s iconic Raft of the Medusa. These strands from two ends of a common arc converge in the extraordinary Refugee Trilogy series by Rick Shaefer, which represents the Connecticut-based artist’s passionate and cerebral response to the current Syrian refugee crisis, the seismic effects of which continue to resonate around the globe.
