Jubileum Tentoonstelling / Rembrandt (1923). Hubert Marie Huib Luns (Dutch, 1881-1942). Poster. Printer: Conrs. Immig & Zoon, Rotterdam.

In 1923, Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum wished to promote its Rembrandt Society, and Luns was the perfect artist for the commission. Among other things, he’d been a professor of art history and an author of books on art. The finely drawn design, showing half-profiles of Rembrandt and Raphael, uses gold ink in addition to the black.
