Rembrandt’s graphical work and the 17th-century paintings of pre-Rembrandtists and artists from Rembrandt’s studio are the undisputed core of the collection. This is work that has emerged or functioned in the house itself. Also the house is to be regarded as a collection piece.
In addition to the collection of etchings, drawings and copper plates by the master himself, the Rembrandt House Museum also owns a small number of paintings by Rembrandt’s teacher, his pupils and his contemporaries. The Rembrandt House Museum attracts a great many visitors with its permanent display of Rembrandt’s etchings.
