Marking the 350th anniversary of the death of Rembrandt, this exhibition celebrates the Dutch Master's ground-breaking etching work.

The selection of original etchings on loan from the British Museum gives visitors a rare insight into Rembrandt’s development, experimentation and pioneering role in the field of etching.

It's a unique opportunity to view several important works on paper not seen before in Carlisle and to learn more about the skill and art of etching. Alongside the loans from the British Museum, a number of etchings from Tullie House's own collection have been selected to explore the influence and impact of Rembrandt’s work on later artists, such as Jean-François Millet and Camille Pissarro.

New works displayed within the exhibition have been created by Making Space, a group of artists living with mental health issues who continue to draw inspiration from the Old Master and his etchings.
