Exhibition: Rembrandt Etchings

Friday, May 31, 2019 from 10:00am to 4:00pm


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

The public is invited. Admission is free.

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. “Rembrandt was a man of strong faith, and he clearly took inspiration from the Bible as he navigated the challenges of his life,” said Charles Mason, who is the director and the Margaret Feldmann Kruizenga Curator of the Kruizenga Art Museum. 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.

Admission to the Kruizenga Art Museum is always free. Public visiting hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please check the museum’s website hope.edu/kam or social media for additional information about special programs and events related to “Rembrandt Etchings.”

The museum functions as an educational resource for Hope College and the greater West Michigan community. The museum features two public galleries as well as a classroom and climate-controlled storage space for its 4,500-object permanent collection. It is named in honor of a leadership gift from Dr. Richard and the late Margaret Kruizenga of Holland, both of whom graduated from Hope in 1952.

The Kruizenga Art Museum is located at 271 Columbia Ave., between 10th and 13th streets.
