Description
In this updated edition of his highly praised book, Christopher White provides the definitive account of Rembrandt's etchings and their significance within the larger body of the artist's work. With eloquence and deep insight, White analyzes the technical, stylistic, and iconographic features of selected etchings, traces their close relationship with the artist's drawings, and reveals how Rembrandt made the medium his own.

Rembrandt was one of the first artists to experiment with the media of etching and drypoint, submitting his plates to numerous reworkings, drawing on impressions, and varying the inking of his plates and his papers. In a detailed discussion of Rembrandt's methods, White shows that the changes and variations Rembrandt introduced often provide a unique opportunity -- not afforded by paintings and drawings -- to observe the artist at work.
