The Entombment, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1652 - 1656

etching and drypoint, printed with surface tone on vellum, h 205mm × w 158mm. More details

As was quite often the case, Rembrandt was not immediately satisfied. In the second state he darkened the scene with etching and drypoint to such an extent that the figures surrounding Christ can be distinguished only in those few areas where the light falls. He printed this impression with heavy surface tone on vellum, creating a deep subdued tone.
