Visconti is delighted to announce the launch of the new Rembrandt-S fountain pen collection for 2022. The iconic Rembrandt fountain pen has been renovated and updated in four new contrasting color combinations and a newly designed ring. Visconti goes a step further and accentuates the colored resin with ruthenium trims and a new larger size steel nib made by Schmidt Germany.
Visconti's Rembrandt collection was inspired by the famous 17th-century painter, Rembrandt Van Rijn. Rembrandt is famed for his ability to blend the elements of earthly and spiritual life into his works. Rembrandt mastered the use of color using the Chiaroscuro technique, an oil painting practice that uses strong contrasts between light and dark using shading to represent three dimensional forms.
Visconti uses a unique mixture of variegated resin resulting in a swirl of light and dark colors reminiscent of Rembrandt's famous painting technique. Visconti has mastered this technique by selecting colorful resins with brush-like strokes that make each and every pen unique, a true masterpiece in its own right. The red variegated resin in this fountain pen is mixed with marbleized brush strokes of black resin.
The cap uses a simple magnetic closure and a metal trim ring. The Visconti clip represents the historic Ponte Vecchio Bridge. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international short cartridges.
