Notes:   By the middle of the nineteenth century the original copper plates produced by Rembrandt were worn or had been re-worked.  Charles Amand-Durand (1831-1905) took it upon himself to recreate over 300 copper plates using a range of techniques including etching and drypoint and they were then hand-pulled using traditional methods on to a variety of handmade papers. The prints were so good that they were often confused with genuine Rembrandt life time impressions.

At the request of the Louvre Museum, Amand-Durand’s stamp verso was introduced in order to try and prevent this from happening.  The stamp is in the form of a red collectors mark made up of his initials - see Lugt Stamp Catalogue, number LUGT 2934.

 

These Rembrandt etchings produced by Charles Amand-Durand are considered the best 19th century etchings after Rembrandt.
