CultureHaus InHaus presents an exclusive after-hours tour of Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker with Gates Foundation Curator of Painting and Sculpture, Timothy J. Strandring.
Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker showcases over 100 prints by Rembrandt Van Rijn. The exhibition focuses on Rembrandt’s innovative approach to printmaking that combined etching, drypoint and engraving.
New research is presented revealing how Rembrandt intentionally varied the states of his prints for marketing and storytelling purposes. While the exhibition focuses on Rembrandt’s exploration of printmaking, several paintings and 17 drawings also will be on view to provide additional context about his creative process in all media.
Join us for happy hour at 5:30 p.m. at Cap City Tavern, 1247 Bannock St, Denver, CO 80204. We’ll head over to the DAM around 6:15 p.m. for the private tour which will begin at 6:30 p.m. This event is free for CultureHaus members plus one guest. We look forward to seeing you!
