Rembrandt and Japanese Paper

I went the Rembrandt house last week with Hannie van den Bergh (coordinator of Deshima AIR).
Rembrandt house was the exhibition Rembrandt and Japanese Paper Exhibition.

It was the first time,I saw an old style Amsterdam house from the inside.
They restaurated Rembrandt’s living and working place, where he lived for twenty years.
It looks interesting.
I could see old style paint.

Next thing, I saw Japanese paper exhibition.
Rembrandt made use of preferably a Japanese paper.
I was comparing Japanese paper and European paper print.
On the Japanese paper the etches were more soft than European paper.

I like Japanese paper material.
I could understand Rembrandt likes Japanese paper!!
