Rembrandt: The Etchings

Rembrandt: The Etchings

CU Center for Bioethics and Humanities

Drs. Tobia and Morton Mower have once again shared works from their extensive private collection with the CU Center for Bioethics and Humanities to give the public an opportunity to see the intricately detailed etchings for which Rembrandt was most renowned and revered during his life. Rembrandt revolutionized a technique previously used primarily by printmakers to galvanize the art world of 17th century Europe with a new medium. His work left a lasting impression and legacy for generations of accomplished artists who followed. Centuries later, fellow Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh expressed a deep reverence for the work of Rembrandt, writing, “Rembrandt is so deeply mysterious that he says things for which there are no words in any language.” Curator Simon Zalkind and Gallery Director Tess Jones, PhD, are thrilled to collaborate again with the Mowers. “It may come as a surprise to many that during his lifetime, Rembrandt was most famous and sought after for his etchings, not his paintings,” explains Jones. “It is an honor to have over 50 of these celebrated and influential works on display.” The exhibit will close on Friday, December 1. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The gallery is free and open to the public. [Organizer's description]
