Update on Rembrandt Exhibit
I mentioned in a previous post that we were trying to find an inexpensive alternative to Rembrandt and His Times (the book for sale at the Milwaukee Art Museum relating to the exhibit we visited a few weeks ago). They did offer a smaller book on the exhibit, but that focused on the paintings and my daughter was interested in the landscape sketches. Anyway, we found a great alternative used online - and I've seen additional copies kicking around online in case anyone had the same issue we did. The book is called Drawings from the Albertina: Landscape in the Age of Rembrandt (published by Art Services International 1995, editor Marian Bisanz-Prakken). We found ours used on Amazon for $10. Hurray! We just received the book today. It's beautiful, large size and with very nice prints (retails for $30, but it may be out of print).
