The Syndics

Etcher Léopold Flameng French
After Rembrandt (Rembrandt van Rijn) Dutch

Not on view

Flameng was among the last generation of highly-skilled reproductive—or interpretive, as they preferred to be called—printmakers in nineteenth-century France, before photography fully subsumed this practice. He and a small group of devoted etchers considered themselves to be Rembrandt’s successors in their use of the medium. Flameng exhibited this etching after Rembrandt’s The Syndics, 1662 (Rijksmuseum) alongside his interpretation of The Anatomy Lesson, 1632 (Mauritshuis) at the Salon of 1876.
