"Rembrandt was one of the first artists to experiment with the media of etching and drypoint, submitting his plates to numerous reworkings, drawing on impressions, varying the inking of his plates and the papers on which he printed. Detailed study reveals that in many cases the changes and variations he introduced provide a unique opportunity, not afforded by the paintings and drawings, of observing the artist at work."--BOOK JACKET."
