Start date: Saturday, June 9, 2012

The Arlington Museum of Art presents etchings of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669). The exhibition examines the evolution of an etching from copper plates. While Rembrandt is widely known for his paintings, he's critically acclaimed for his mastery of the art of etching. Rembrandt achieved dramatic detail while incorporating the use of light and dark. Of the three hundred or so known etchings by Rembrandt, the Arlington Museum of Art will show works from the four major themes of his work including self-portraits and portraits, biblical scenes, genre scenes and landscapes. The exhibition showcases some of the most celebrated etchings as well as some of the lesser known and rarely exhibited pieces.
Admission to the exhibit is $8 for adults; $5 for students and seniors (over 65); free to members and children under 12 with an adult.
