What’s On end August into September 2016

throughout Aug & Sep “Rembrandt etching”
A unique ink etching taken from a copperplate believed to have been made by
Rembrandt in 1633. It is the only known copy to have been printed in red ink; made
at some time after his death. Well worth seeing. Included in normal House admission.

the period. Included in normal House admission.
