Dr. Martha Hollander, who will give a presentation entitled "Rembrandt: The Master as Printmaker" at the General Membership meeting of the
Jackson Heights Art Club
.  Dr. Hollander received a B.A. from Yale University and a PhD. from the University of California at Berkeley, both in art history, and she has taught at Hofstra since 1995.  She has also taught at UCLA, SUNY Albany, School of Visual Arts, Pratt Institute, and Parsons School of Design.

Her specialization is seventeenth-century Dutch art, but she also teaches surveys of western art, courses in visual culture and art historical method, women's studies, and courses based on sites in and around New York City.  She is also interested in the history of costume and the history of film, film adaptations of literature, and the history of production design and art direction. 

We all know Rembrandt as one of the greatest painters of the western tradition, but you may not be aware that he was also an innovative and
pioneering printmaker.  He was one of the first artists of his age to do a brisk business in the new medium of etching.  In this talk, Dr.
Hollander will explore his etched portraits, self-portraits, and narratives.  Plus, she will discuss his restless experiments with the complex etching technique, and his entrepreneurial spirit as a marketer of his own prints.
 

Dr. Hollander is also our neighbor.  She moved to the area with her family on the historic New Year's Eve of 1999.  Don't miss this opportunity to not only hear an outstanding presentation but also to meet a local resident of Queens.

The event is free and open to the public.
