Dutch, German, and Italian Renaissance Prints
February 04 through April 08, 2012
Between 1450 and the early 16th century, a few artists transformed the nascent craft of printing into an art form of nearly equal standing with painting. This small Weil Print Study exhibition of Old Master Prints from the MMFA Permanent Collection included the work of several important printmakers of that era: Martin Schongauer, three of the five “Little Masters” (Heinrich Aldegrever, Albrecht Altdorfer, and George Princz), Lucas Van Leyden, and Andrea Mantegna.
Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
