A Study of a Rembrandt Etching(2)

A remarkable site from the National Gallery that centers on the copperplate etching "Abraham Entertaining the Angels," by Rembrandt. An impressive array of museum resources not only tell the story behind the etching's Old Testament subject, but also tell the story of the artist's life and that of the art of etching. Includes a comparison of etching with woodcutting and engraving, along with a thorough step-through explanation of the etching process.
