Etching as a dramatic dialogue of darkness and light
Rembrandt the Etcher

Ongoing through February 17, 2014, MFA. Etching emerged in the early 16th century in Germany and Italy, but its full creative potential was only realized with Rembrandt Harmensz Van Rijn’s work from 1630 to 1661. Exhibition of 45 works explores the unprecedented range of subject matter, format, and graphic vocabulary in the nearly 300 etchings that Rembrandt made during his career.
