Rembrandt Etchings at the Arlington Museum of Art

Rembrandt: An Evolution of Etchings opens June 9th and runs through August 12th. You can view this exhibit at the Arlington Museum of Art during its regular hours Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will be closed Mondays and Independence Day. A preview of the exhibition and opening reception will be open to event sponsors and museum members on June 8th, 2012, from 6 – 9pm.

While Rembrandt is widely known for his painting ability, he is critically acclaimed for his mastery of the art of etching. He achieved dramatic detail while incorporating the use of light and dark. The exhibit will show pieces from the four major themes of his work; self-portraits and portraits, biblical scenes, genre scenes and landscapes. Some of his most celebrated etchings as well as some of the lesser known and rarely exhibited pieces will be showcased.

AMA will host two lectures sponsored by UTA and a short documentary sponsored by The History Channel. There will also be a gift shop.

Tickets for this exhibit are $8 for adults; $5 for students, seniors (65 and over); free to members and children 12 and under accompanied by an adult. Tickets are on sale online (scroll down the page) or at the museum.
