Description: Bussum-Paris: Thoth, Fondation Custodia, 2008. 2 vols. 25cm., hardcover. Vol. 1: Catalogue raisonne, 677pp., 21 illus. ; Vol. 2: Plates, 341pp. prof. illus. English text. The famous Frits Lugt collection, which is to be found in the Institut Néerlandais in Paris, comprises the almost complete graphic oeuvre of Rembrandt. This unique collection of etchings, assembled largely between 1920 and 1935 by the Rembrandt authority Frits Lugt, is characterised by early states and exceptional impressions. Every item has been chosen with a profound feeling for its pictorial quality. Research into the provenance shows that most of the prints come from famed collections. Erik Hinterding is the author of this catalogue covering the entire collection. Thanks to his years of research into the watermarks, copper plates and paper, a great deal has been learned about the production and distribution of Rembrandt’s prints. Precise descriptions of the prints and his discoveries provide a new stimulus for further research. The catalogue consists of a text and plate volume. The colour reproductions of the etchings in the volume are, with only a few exceptions, prepared directly from the originals. At the end of this volume there are x-ray reproductions of around eighty watermarks.
