Upcoming Exhibitions

Rembrandt Etchings: States, Fakes, and Restrikes
August 15, 2016 to October 2, 2016

On loan from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, this exhibit includes 42 works by Rembrandt, some of which are known forgeries.

Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (Dutch, 1606-1669), one of the most influential printmakers in the history of art, created etchings on 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. But how can one be sure that a Rembrandt is truly or wholly by Rembrandt? This exhibition examines the problem of authenticating Rembrandt’s etchings. The exhibition includes first state pulls from the artist’s lifetime and restrike prints from the17th to the 20th centuries. This exhibit is made possible through the support of George S. Parker II, and will be on view from August 15 to October 2 in the Wanda Hollensteiner Gallery.
