Wing lecture room

New date!

This symposium will examine how both pedagogical approaches and increased watermarks data for Rembrandt’s prints can be used along with traditional connoisseurship to answer questions about Rembrandt as a printmaker—and raise new ones. Speakers will discuss cross-disciplinary projects and collaborative research in academic collections, and how they extend the reach of existing knowledge about Rembrandt’s practice. A panel discussion will explore the teaching of Rembrandt’s prints from a variety of perspectives in different settings, including the university, the encyclopedic museum, and the conservation studio. 

Keynote presenters:

Erik Hinterding, Curator of Prints, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
“Rembrandt’s Paper: State of the research and where we go from here”

Susan Donahue Kuretsky, Professor of Art on the Sarah Gibson Blanding Chair, Vassar College
“In Love with Line: Tales of Teaching with Rembrandt”
