Rembrandt revival | Rembrandthuis

Berthe Morisot, The Drawing lesson, 1889. Dry needle, Museum Het Rembrandthuis, Amsterdam

Manet, Morisot, Whistler, Cassatt — these are only a few of the famous painters who were inspired by Rembrandt and started making etchings themselves. This sparked an international resurgence of the art of etching between 1850 and 1940: the Etching Revival. The artworks from this period are experimental and innovative, with striking compositions and surprising techniques. Rembrandt was an important source of inspiration for these artists. The Etching Revival was therefore also a Rembrandt Revival. 

The Rembrandt House Museum recently received a generous donation of international etchings from the collector Neeke Fraenkel-Schoorl. From 11 June, dozens of highlights from this collection will be on view in our exhibition Rembrandt Revival. In the accompanying audio tour, Neeke Fraenkel-Schoorl guides you personally along some of her favourites. In addition to the exhibition, The Rembrandt House Museum will also organize engaging and inspiring activities, including etching workshops and a RembrandtLIVE talkshow and podcast.
