"Of course, you will say that I ought to be practical...
Well, I will tell you a secret. I have tried and I have tried
very hard, but I can't do it. I just can't do it!
And that is why I am just a little crazy."
Though he lived 400 years ago (1606 - 1669) and despite all the changes in the world of art, Rembrandt is still recognized as one of the greatest artists of all time, ranking with Di Vinci and Michelangelo*. Paintings by these artists however, cannot be purchased by typical collectors.
Standing alone as an incredible opportunity, Rembrandt's etchings, the gold standard of that art form, created with his own hand - are uniquely available to be acquired by savvy collectors.
"Rembrandt's etchings have been collected and preserved by museums since his lifetime. The etching plates themselves were treasured and purchased after his death by wealthy collectors and are now valued into the several of millions of dollars.
Despite this, etchings themselves have continued to pass hands between collectors at a fraction of the potential value. This opportunity is now waning as both museums and private collectors race to own Rembrandts etchings. Among all potential legacy works, Rembrandt etchings must rank as the highest "opportunity" acquisitions."
