We went to film a marvellous Rembrandt print at the booth of David Tunick, one of the most knowledgeable dealers in fine arts prints. We didn’t expect to receive a complete training in Rembrandt’s way of making prints in addition to an informative explanation of the significance of prints in the market. We are very glad to share this fascinating discussion we had with him during TEFAF 2016.
