Rembrandt in the Classroom

Students in Visiting Assistant Professor Hilary Snow’s ARTHIST 341: 17th Century Art in Holland and Flanders had the opportunity to compare three versions of a Rembrandt print firsthand. Using prints from the UWM Art Collection, students viewed an original self-portrait by Rembrandt, a 19th re-strike from the same plate, and a 20th forgery.  Students studied the prints close-up and then discussed which they thought was printed by Rembrandt himself.
