If you want to see etchings from the 17th through 19th century, now is a good time. There are etchings by Rembrandt, Goya, Degas and Cassatt currently on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Contemporary etchings are on view at the Museum of Modern Art. For those of you who don't go to museums often, remember that not all works owned by a museum are on view. The exhibit is constantly changing. If you want to see a specific work of art, check the museum's website to see what is on display.
