The foundational techniques of Western printmaking—woodcut, engraving, drypoint, and etching—originated in the Renaissance. Burgeoning demand for wide circulation of both images and texts as well as rapid development of new materials and technologies formed a crucible for remarkable creativity and innovation. This exhibition exploring these techniques and the social and cultural history of early modern prints will be collaboratively curated with University of Missouri undergraduate and graduate students.
Closed on Mondays and University holidays
