Rembrandt’s etchings on show at Norwich Castle


 More than 80 etchings by Rembrandt are on display at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery until 7 January. Rembrandt: Lightening the Darkness includes the museum’s own collection, plus national loans. Before becoming known as a painter, Rembrandt built a strong reputation across Europe as a printmaker and is widely considered the most accomplished etcher of all time.
