This exhibition contains 21 etchings by Rembrandt and one drawing by Rembrandt’s teacher, Pieter Lastman. These works highlight the artist’s nuanced relationship with Amsterdam’s citizens of the Jewish faith and the keen insights Rembrandt brought to interpretations of Old Testament Bible stories. Rembrandt broke with longstanding, traditional depictions of biblical narratives; instead, he added emotional and psychological depth to his subjects through expressive faces, dramatic body language, and his bold use of shadow and light.
