Etching after Rembrandt by Ignace de Claussin c. 1820
Chevalier IGNACE JOSEPH DE CLAUSSIN (1795-1844), was born in Luneville, France and died in Paris in 1844. He was an ardent, eccentric collector and a talented artist in his own right. In 1824 de Claussin published a catalogue raisonné that at the time was a major contribution to the scholarly study of Rembrandt's prints. He was a highly talented copyist of Rembrandt's works, producing more than 200 etchings after works of Rembrandt and other artists. Many museums, including the National Gallery of Victoria, retain examples of De Claussin's prints, an indication of their quality and faithfulness to Rembrandt's technique and imagery.
