Rembrandt: The Consummate Etcher

September 16 – November 14, 2013

The Palitz Gallery, NYC

The Syracuse University Art Galleries is proud to present Rembrandt: the Consummate Etcher and other 17th century Printmakers. This exhibition is a celebration of Louise and Bernard Palitz and their association with the Syracuse University Art Galleries.  In the mid-1980s Louise and Bernard Palitz made their first gift to the Syracuse University Art Collection and over the next 25 years they became ardent supports of Syracuse University and our arts programs.  About ten years ago they gave us funds to renovate the gallery space at Lubin House and established and endowment to help it operate as an exciting venue for the University in New York City.  During its short existence the Palitz Gallery has presented exhibitions that displayed the work of William Blake, James Whistler, Albert Maysles, Winslow Homer, and of course, our 2008 landmark exhibition: Michelangelo: the Man and the Myth.

This display primarily utilizes the holdings of the Syracuse University Art Collection and explores the impact of one of Europe’s most important artists on the printmakers of his day. This project, which grew out of a series of lectures for the Museums Studies Graduate Curatorship and Connoisseurship of Prints class, demonstrates the value of a study collection as a teaching tool that can extend outside the classroom.
