REMBRANDT REVISITED: PRINTMAKING AND THE ART OF THE COPPERPLATE
Roman Grigoryev, St. Petersburg
During the late 16th - early 17th century, printmaking in Northern Europe often focused on commercial reproduction of paintings. It was a flourishing industry with a well-established system of collective craftsmanship. Rembrandt departed from this pattern seeking to ascertain the copperplate as art in its own right.
Dr. Roman Grigoryev is the Head of the Print Collection at the Hermitage State Museum and Professor of Art History at the European University at St. Petersburg which is Vassar’s partner institution for the JYA program in Russia. Dr. Grigoryev is an internationally renowned scholar of Rembrandt’s prints.
