The Flight into Egypt

Active selection in cart:
The Flight into Egypt must have had a special significance for Rembrandt, for he revisited the subject repeatedly. This version of 1633 is much more skilfully etched than the previous one. However, he did struggle with the porous etching ground, which renders the sky an uneven grey. This is not too disturbing: with a little imagination, it looks just like a starry sky. Date: 1633. Object ID: RP-P-OB-102.
