Each year Notable Acquisitions is published as an adjunct to the Annual Report. Whereas the Annual Report provides extensive coverage on the activities of most Museum departments, with a complete list of new accessions, Notable Acquisitions is intended to single out those works that we deem notable, quite literally, and that merit fuller explanatory texts. It is understandable but no less regrettable, therefore, that in some years, owing to the paucity of the Metropolitan's acquisitions funds, certain departments can neither afford objects of real distinction nor even find themselves in the happy circumstances of receiving major gifts or bequests. In 1983-84, fate has dictated that several departments, which during other fiscal years could demonstrate support from loyal donors or draw on various funds for outstanding purchases, are not represented. Oddly, they are the three departments that deal with antiquity: Ancient Near Eastern Art, Greek and Roman Art, and Egyptian Art; all, ironically, have been in the limelight within the past eighteen months as a result of major installations of their permanent collections. Occasionally, the acquisition of a very few objects or even of a single extraordinary one completely exhausts the Museum's financial resources. The superb Saint John on Patmos by Hans Baldung Grien, illustrated on the cover of this publication, falls into this category. That the picture should have preempted other possible purchases we readily forgive, so important is it to the Museum's holdings of German paintings, to which it adds a wholly new dimension. This was understood by an impressive number of magnanimous friends, whose names appear on the label so that they might be acknowledged by viewers of the picture, each of whom will undoubtedly derive benefit and enjoyment from it

Rembrandt and his circle : drawings and prints by Michiel Plomp ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Treasured throughout Europe since the seventeenth century, Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijns prints were objects of esteem during his lifetime (16061669). Artists, writers, and collectors at the time admired Rembrandt's work, and already in 1641, when the artist was in his mid-thirties, he was praised in a German publication as one of the most noteworthy printmakers of the era. In 1995, The Metropolitan Museum of Art presented "Rembrandt/ Not Rembrandt," an exhibition that displayed the artists paintings, drawings, and prints, but concentrated on his connoisseurship. Although much of the information contained in this volume depends heavily on the 1995 exhibition, the focus here is different. In this manuscript, more attention is paid to Rembrandt's pupils and to other artists from his immediate circle. In part because of his fame, Rembrandt was a sought after teacher. The exact number of his pupils is unknown but may have numbered about forty or fifty. Some of them, such as Ferdinand Bol, Govaert Flinck, and Nicolaes Maes, would become important artists in their own right. The pupils closely imitated Rembrandt's style and technique, creating works that are sometimes hard to distinguish from those of the master. Apart from their beauty and sheer quality, the pupils works on paper have undergone serious investigation only in recent decades, resulting in quite a number of repercussions and changes of attribution in the master's oeuvrea process that continues today. This volume and the exhibition it accompanies celebrate Rembrandt's 400th birthday."--The Metropolitan Museum of Art web site
