REMBRANDT Harmensz van Rijn (1606-1669)

Rembrandt has been so much associated with the 17th century's etching art in the Netherlands as nobody before. Contemporary etchers where Claude Lorrain and Elsheimer but Rembrandt did surpassed them without any discussion with his spiritual and emotional power. He was probably also the artist who putted the most time and effort in his etchings and was fascinated by the process starting with drawing, etching but also the printing of the plate and the use of the paper. Nevertheless his works are always very spontaneous and reflect the art feeling of probably  the greatest master in the medium of all times.
