Responding to a Master is a collection of prints produced by 14 students in the Introduction to Print Media course, taught by Professor Gregory Page and assisted by MPF Printmaking Technician Julianne Hunter and teaching assistant Libby Rosa at Cornell University in the Academic Year 2017-2018. The students created portfolios of 18 limited edition prints utilizing various techniques taught in class including lithography, woodcut relief and screen printing. Each print measures 11”x15” and is hand-printed on various archival grade fine art papers.

Rembrandt, a Dutch master of the 17th Century, gave rise to important ways of image making. His subject matter and style influenced generations of artists to come. The students responded to the plethora of subjects in Rembrandt's etchings, ranging from portraits to genre scenes and landscapes to narratives. The students visited The Johnson Museum twice to view the exhibition and to study several Rembrandt prints up-close. The work responds to Lines of Inquiry: Learning From Rembrandt’s Etchings, an exhibition co-curated by Andrew C. Weislogel and Andaleeb Badiee Banta at The Johnson Museum of Art.
