In s2ep18, Ann Shafer and Tru Ludwig talk about one of the best etchers ever, Rembrandt van Rijn. In this first of three episodes on RvR, Tru sets the stage and takes us through some of Rembrandt's key landscape etchings, including the iconic The Three Trees. Remember, we really haven't seen anyone take up etching with this much success so far. Rembrandt sets the bar for and forever changes what we mean by autographic etching.
