The much-loved and prolific 17th-century Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn created an extensive body of prints, 26 of which are now on display in the Works on Paper Study Room. Celebrated works including Self-Portrait with Saskia and Descent from the Cross are on view through September 2.

Picturing Protest
WHEN: Through October 14

The civil rights demonstrations and antiwar protests of the 1960s reached audiences around the world through images captured by photographers. These images transformed the visibility of collective action and fundamentally changed the ways people visualized America. Featuring iconic works by Gordon Parks, Charles Moore, John Filo, and others, Picturing Protest examines the visual framing of political demonstrations around the country—and on Princeton’s campus—between 1960 and 1970.
