Biblical Imagery by Italian, German, and Dutch Old Master Printmakers
November 02 through December 29, 2013
Throughout the Renaissance and Baroque eras in Europe, artists created religious imagery in prints for art collectors. This exhibition featured selections from the extraordinary collection of Old Master prints assembled by Adolph Weil Jr. and subsequently donated by him and his heirs to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Woodblock prints, engravings, and etchings by Andrea Mantegna (Italian, 1431–1506), Albrecht Durer (German, 1471–1528), Martin Schongauer (German, c.1450–1491), Lucas von Leyden (Dutch, c.1489/1533), and Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669) were included.
