"Sordid and Sacred: The Beggars in Rembrandt's Etchings" features selections from the Villarino Collection. The exhibition features 36 rare etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) executed between 1629 and 1648. Widely recognized as the greatest practitioner of the etching technique in the history of art, Rembrandt created 300 prints that constitute a body of work unparalleled in richness and beauty. Rembrandt repeatedly chose beggars as the subject for his etchings. Many of Rembrandt's etchings sympathetically portray beggars as biblical figures. These etchings of beggars also played an essential role in Rembrandt's formative years as an artist.
