A Unique Silence - Temporarily Closed

Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, Belfast, Antrim, BT9 5AB
A Unique Silence - Temporarily Closed


Though many of his paintings are associated with the dramatic and awe inspiring style of Baroque painting, Rembrandt’s etchings communicate a unique silence that is often found in the Golden Age of Dutch art; the still of nature, the intimacy of the human face and thoughtful biblical scenes.

Rembrandt’s lack of fear in experimenting with etching led him to develop a new style and to push the limits of the technique, cementing him as a printmaker who inspired the generations that followed. The accompanying works in this exhibition are from the wider Ulster Museum print collection. They welcome Rembrandt, through showing how the medium has evolved and yet still reflects his innovative work.
