Curriculum vitae and work

hinterding Erik Hinterding studied art history at Utrecht University in the 1980s. After completing a work placement at the Rijksmuseum Print Room he held posts at the Paper History Department of the National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague and the print room of the Pinacoteca Nazionale in Bologna. There he developed an interest in early prints in general and in Rembrandt’s print oeuvre in particular, as well as in paper and watermarks, which he pursued further in the following years. In 2001 he completed his PhD, written on ‘Rembrandt the etcher: two studies on practices of production and dissemination’.

Hinterding has worked on publications and exhibitions for the Rijksmuseum and the Rembrandt House Museum in Amsterdam, the Fondation Custodia in Paris, the Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome, the Stiftung Weimar Klassik in Weimar, the Hämeenlinna Art Museum in Finland and the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo. In 2013 he was one of two authors of the new seven-volume catalogue raisonné of Rembrandt’s etchings, published as part of the prestigious New Hollstein series. He has been Curator of Prints at the Rijksmuseum since 2012, where he oversees the early print collection. His major interests are the etchings of Rembrandt and his pupils, contemporaries and successors, and paper and watermarks, alongside other parts of the collection including cartography and topography, popular prints and later forms of printing such as lithography. Besides this he also does research on the history of print collecting in general and on the development of the collections of the Rijksmuseum’s Print Room in particular.
