Great Expectations: Rembrandt and the Hundred Guilder Print

Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Marvin Gelber Print & Drawing Study Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario

Rembrandt's most ambitious etching Christ Healing the Sick came to be called The Hundred Guilder print when the artist exchanged an impression for the enormous sum of 100 guilders. Rembrandt, master printmaker and storyteller, used the Bible as a nearly limitless storehouse of narratives. In mid-career he strove to outdo all other masters and create the most complex print the world had ever seen. Did he succeed? Explore this and other highlights from the AGO's collection of Rembrandt etchings with Lloyd DeWitt, Curator of European Art, and learn about Rembrandt's technical virtuosity and extraordinary ambition.
