Rembrandt’s Changing Impressions, on view through December 12, is curated by Art History PhD candidate Robert Fucci. This extraordinary project highlights Rembrandt’s most dramatically altered prints. It gathers 52 17th-century impressions from 14 major U.S. collections to best examine his manipulations and transformations, and is an unprecedented opportunity to examine the range, power, and nuance of Rembrandt’s fine prints. »
