Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, is one of the most important artists in European history and more specifically of Holland's "Golden Age". He gained an international reputation for his spectacular etchings and printmaking techniques in the seventeenth century. His innovations transformed a relatively new medium, and pushed etching to new expressive limits. His technique was so amazing that some believed he had discovered a secret process.
