Andrew Weislogel, “The WIRE Project: Crowd-Sourcing Watermark Identification toward a Broader Understanding of Rembrandt’s Etchings”
This talk was part of the symposium Rembrandt and Leiden: New Perspectives that took place at Agnes Etherington Art Centre on 8 November 2019. The symposium featured new research by international scholars on Rembrandt and his circle, Leiden and Dutch culture in the seventeenth century, connecting the exhibition “Leiden circa 1630: Rembrandt Emerges” with new perspectives on the artist and his era.
