(Livestream) Lecture: Making & Selling Prints in the Age of Rembrandt

November 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Join us on Tuesday, November 19 at 5 p.m. for a lecture by Nadine Orenstein, PhD., Drue Heinz Curator in Charge of the Department of Drawings and Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art: “Rare and Everywhere: Making & Selling Prints in the Age of Rembrandt.”

One of the most creative and inventive etchers of his day, Rembrandt was one among many figures active in the production of prints in Holland during the seventeenth century. By the time he began making prints, the United Provinces had become the center for the European print trade in the seventeenth century. This talk will look at printmaking and the business of prints in Holland in the seventeenth century, from the rare to the everyday print.

Dr. Orenstein’s lecture will be livestreamed on thequicklive.com

This lecture is part of the Edwin L. Weisl, Jr. Lectureships in Art History, funded by the Robert Lehman Foundation, and is presented in conjunction with Ink and Time: European Prints from the Wetmore Collection (Bellarmine Hall Galleries, September 12 – December 21, 2024).
