Italian Printmakers Circa 1600: Four Diverging Paths
April 1, 2021 - January 16, 2022
The Winton Jones Gallery for Prints and Drawings (Gallery 344)
This exhibition focuses on four remarkable and highly individual printmakers who worked in Italy around the year 1600. Each took a different path. Two were brothers, Agostino and Annibale Carracci. Promoting the study of live models and nature, they had a profound impact on artistic trends in Italy. Camillo Procaccini spent scant time on printmaking, but his few excursions into the medium resulted in visionary productions with powerfully emotional content. Andrea Andreani devoted his career to translating the works of other artists into complex woodcuts, sometimes of remarkable size.
