The Denver Art Museum is the sole venue for Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, showcasing about 100 prints from Rembrandt van Rijn’s career spanning from 1625 to 1665.

Unforgettable images of biblical, portrait, allegory, still life, landscape, and genre artworks of the time demonstrate the mastery that cemented Rembrandt as one of the greatest artists in history. The exhibition shows how Rembrandt used his view of the world around him to fuel his artistic journey, and gives a deeper understanding of his working habits as an artist, and moreover, as a printmaker.

Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker takes a close look at Rembrandt’s innovative approach to printmaking that combined the three principle methods of intaglio, including etching, drypoint and engraving. New scholarship about the artist is presented, revealing how Rembrandt intentionally varied the states of his prints, ink, and exotic papers to create rarities that he knew his clients desired, demonstrating how he deliberately manipulated his prints for marketing and storytelling purposes.

While the exhibition focuses on Rembrandt's exploration of printmaking, several paintings and 17 drawings also are on view to provide additional context about his creative process in all media.

Included in The New York Times Art Fall Preview of don't-miss shows around the country.

El Denver Art Museum será el único museo que presentará Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker (Rembrandt: el pintor como grabador), con cerca de 100 grabados de la carrera de Rembrandt van Rijn que abarcan de 1625 a 1665.

Imágenes inolvidables de retratos, alegorías, bodegones, paisajes, y referencias bíblicas y de género de esa época demuestran el dominio que cimentó a Rembrandt como uno de los artistas más excepcionales de la historia. La exposición mostrará cómo usaba Rembrandt su visión del mundo que lo rodeaba para impulsar su viaje artístico y permitirá un entendimiento más profundo de sus hábitos de trabajo como artista y, además, como grabador.

Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker examinará atentamente la técnica innovadora que Rembrandt usaba con los grabados que combinaba los tres métodos principales del intaglio: aguafuerte, punta seca y grabado. Se presentará información nueva sobre el artista que revelará de qué manera Rembrandt variaba el estado de sus grabados, tintas y papeles exóticos para crear rarezas que sabía que sus clientes deseaban, y así se demostrará cómo manipulaba deliberadamente sus grabados con fines comerciales y narrativos.

Aunque la exposición se centra en el proceso exploratorio de Rembrandt sobre los grabados, también se expondrán cinco pinturas y 17 dibujos que proporcionarán más contexto sobre su proceso creativo en todos los medios.

Las tiendas del DAM ofrecerán un catálogo de la exposición a partir del otoño de 2018, el cual también podrá adquirirse por Internet.

La exposición Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker está organizada por el Denver Art Museum con la colaboración excepcional de la Bibliothèque nationale de France.
