Event information
Venue:FIU-MMC | Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum


FIU's Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum is organizing and hosting an exhibition of prints by Dutch Golden Age painter, printmaker and draftsman Rembrandt van Rijn from September 24, 2022 to January 8, 2023.

This exhibition presents 22 prints by Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn (b. Leiden, 1609–d. Amsterdam, 1699) from the collection of the Georgia Museum of Art. One of the most significant European artists active in the 17th century, Rembrandt pushed the boundaries of printmaking far beyond artists before him. He used the etching needle as he did a paintbrush, seeing the possibilities for creating tone, depth, and texture. The prints presented in Rembrandt Reframed were produced posthumously and speak to the enduring interest in the artist’s work. Following Rembrandt’s death, the French dealer Pierre-François Basan purchased a collection of Rembrandt’s copper plates and in 1786 proceeded to release the first posthumous prints by the Dutch artist. Shortly thereafter, the plates came into the possession of Basan’s son Henri Louis who continued to release prints from the plates until approximately 1808. Basan’s prints are appreciated for their high quality.

This exhibition brings together the work of three contemporary artists with distinctly different practices. Reframed in the context of Rembrandt’s prints Charles Humes, Jr., Jennifer Printz, and Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz challenge us to consider the ways in which they share approaches but also depart dramatically in technique and concept from the Old Master.
