A new focus exhibition opening at the Hope College Kruizenga Art Museum on Tuesday, April 9, will showcase etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn.

“Rembrandt Etchings” will include impressions of 13 etchings by Rembrandt. The prints that will be on display in the exhibition all depict biblical subjects and were created by Rembrandt between 1632 and 1655. Approximately one quarter of Rembrandt’s etchings depict stories from the Bible.  All of the prints in the “Rembrandt Etchings” exhibition were recently donated to the permanent collection of the Kruizenga Art Museum.  The exhibition will continue through Saturday, June 1.

"Rembrandt was a man of strong faith, and he clearly took inspiration from the Bible as he navigated the challenges of his life" Charles Mason, the Director and the Margaret Feldmann Kruizenga Curator of the Kruizenga Art Museum
