Rembrandt, the Experimental Etcher: Self-Portraiture, Landscape, and Merriment” by Shelley Perlove

Guest lecture on “Rembrandt, the Experimental Etcher: Self-Portraiture, Landscape, and Merriment” by Shelley Perlove, Professor Emerita of the History of Art of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, specializes in Italian and Dutch art of the seventeenth century. Her scholarly interests include art and religious culture in early modern Europe, the Hebrew Bible, material culture, and the visual arts, and visual typology in sixteenth-century art. She is the author of two award-winning books published by Penn State University Press: Bernini and the Idealization of Death, and more recently with Larry Silver, Rembrandt’s Faith: Church and Temple in the Dutch Golden Age. She has written more than thirty articles, essays and reviews appearing in such journals as Burlington Magazine, Gazette des Beaux Arts, and Artibus et Historiae and has curated five exhibitions devoted to early modern prints. Most recently she served as consultant to the exhibition, “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus,” which opened at the Louvre. Her current book project investigates the religious works of Rembrandt’s Dutch followers.
