The Ashmolean Museum holds a world-class collection of over 300 prints made by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606-1669). Widely hailed as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age, Rembrandt was also one of the most innovative and experimental printmakers of the seventeenth century. This touring exhibition presents Rembrandt as an unrivalled storyteller through a selection of around fifty outstanding prints ranging from 1630 until the late 1650s. Displayed together for the first time, these works demonstrate Rembrandt’s inventive techniques and unrivalled ability for storytelling.
This exhibition has been organised by the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.

Using the traditional printmaking techniques of linocut and letterpress, these prints are made using the reduction technique in several layers. Influenced by railway posters and a love of typography, Kim has designed the Hitchin prints to illustrate her much loved home town, and added to the range with prints of locations around the world. Kim studied fine art at Exeter, and is currently taking a masters in Illustration and Book Arts at Cambridge School of Art.
This exhibition is in The Arches, part of the Terrace Gallery.
