Reframing the Renaissance Print

Several useful and highly adaptable printmaking and printing methods emerged during the early modern period, ca. 1450-1750, including moveable type, woodcut, engraving, etching, and drypoint. Beyond their technological developments, prints also reflected and responded to significant artistic, cultural, social, spiritual, and political matters of their time. This exhibition challenges us to rethink the definitions of both "Renaissance" and "print" by presenting works that demonstrate the tremendous variability of the subjects and purposes of early modern prints. These works represent the remarkable potential for multiplied images to disseminate different types of knowledge to audiences on both a local and global scale.
