” What’s Happening to the ” Rembrandt Millennium’ Edition Etchings “

September 6, 2012

 

 

”  What’s Happening  to the  ” Rembrandt  Millennium’  Edition Etchings ”

Wonder what ever is happening with the Limited edition ( some limited edition 25 00 impressions ) of the ” Rembrandt  Millennium’  Edition ” , Let take the advantage to take a look at these works , since the year 2000 when these were published and what they are selling at on the Market .  Keep in  mind these are from the original plates , though of much lesser quality than a true collector would touch at any price .

I must admit these are what they are LATER INFERIOR IMAGES  FROM THE ORIGINAL COPPER PLATES . I  have personally seen and inspected these years ago when exhibited in a Leading Gallery in Ft Lauderdale , Florida ,

From this series these includes ;

Bust of  A Man Wearing a High Cap ; Three Quarters Right 

Self Portrait Drawing A  Window
 
The Raising of Lazarus; Large Plate

The Card Player

Rembrandt Mother with her hand on her chest

Landscape with a Cow

Christ & The Woman of Samaria

The Golf Player

These were originally retailed   at the range of  $  3,000.00 to  $  8,000.00 depending on the Gallery and appraised at such INFLATED PRICES . . What is more interesting what they sold for …. ”  The Collector has been taken for a ride”  .  For these prices Collectors could had acquired finer quality impressions by Bason , Watelet ,and even later ones before the Jean Impressions .

I have to cringe when i see the “So Called Professional Appraisals ” that many fools are issuing .  If you take a look at Auction Bases  Such as “Gordon’s Print Prices ” Live Auctions Sold items ” Christies Lot Finders  , you would be sick if  you purchased any of the Rembrandt  Millennium’  Edition  .

 ” Take a look at these Sales figures and Weep ”

Forget the grossly over  prices the ” Fools on E Bay ” are asking . They are desperate to recover what ever they can for over rated and over priced works .

Perhaps if you live to be 150 plus years old you may be fortunate enough to break even with these  prices offered for these . Thank Goodness the remaining copper plates are safe in private collections and  Museums , protecting the reputation of a great print maker as Rembrandt .

To view a Rembrandt Etching  ( one of two ) Pulled from the plate much earlier than the   Millennium’  Edition  , please see the following link;
