Holy Women - Holy Men: Christian Saints in European Prints

Fall 2015

Holy Women - Holy Men: Christian Saints in European Prints PosterOver the centuries saints have served as a rich source of subject matter in the visual arts. Their depictions have formed the basis of countless paintings, sculptures, prints, and other art forms. With the selection of printed imagery in this exhibition, in woodcuts, engravings, and etchings, viewers can sample some of the different approaches artists have chosen for depictions of sainted women and men over a two hundred year period, from the late fifteenth to the late seventeenth century.
