About Catawiki's antique print auction
While an original watercolour painting or hand-drawn illustration can be highly desirable, antique artwork prints are also highly collectable and sought after. Printmaking, as it is known, normally involves producing works of art which have an aspect of originality, as opposed to reproducing already existent works of art. Each print produced in this way, is considered an original artwork, rather than a copy. Printmakers employ a diverse range of methods including Woodcut; Engraving; Etching; Mezzotint; Aquatint; Drypoint; Lithography; Screenprinting; Monotype; Monoprint and Digital Printing. One of the most famous printmakers was the Dutch artist Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, whose etchings and paintings, particularly of Biblical subjects, remain popular today. Several prints of Rembrandt’s work have featured in Catawiki’s Antique Prints auction, these include The Raising of Lazarus, which sold for £1,002 and The Kolf Player, believed to be an impression by Claude-Henri Watelet, which sold for £1,784.
