Printmaking Exhibition at Brompton Cemetery

“The Printmaking students from The Heatherleys School of Fine Art, Chelsea, will be exhibiting for the 5th consecutive year in The Chapel at Brompton on Open Day. This year the students have created prints inspired by the life and legacy of Rembrandt (1606-1669 ) to mark the 350th anniversary of his death (on 4th October 1669).
Led by Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, Holland, and many other countries are celebrating his life and art. Rembrandt was a great painter and innovator and experimenter in the medium of etching. His impact on printmaking is still reflected in etchings produced today, he was experimental and expressive in recording everyday life.
The printmaking students have been drawing through wax onto copper etching plates just as Rembrandt did and the exhibition includes views of Brompton Cemetery: come and see it!  Rembrandt did many landscape etchings, often depicting overgrown and tumbledown structures, he would have loved this garden cemetery!” – Hilary Daltry
