Renaissance and Baroque Prints: Investigating the Collection allows visitors the unique opportunity to witness research in progress when students, faculty, and outside curators examine and assess the works on view through a series of public lectures and gallery talks. This collection of Old Master prints spans the 15th through the 18th centuries, and provides opportunities to study the rise of image dissemination through new printmaking methods. Featuring a wide variety of techniques and subject matter, the installation includes prints by major artists such as Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669), and Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778) alongside the work of several dozen other Renaissance and Baroque artists. Also included is a selection of Old Master drawings which complements the installation.
