Image: Prints after Italian Masterpieces
Curated by Associate Professor of Art History, Bernadine Barnes.
In an age before postcards and photographs, prints were the main way in which the monuments of Italy were known to the world. 40 prints from the collections of Wake Forest University, the Georgia Museum of Art, and the University of North Carolina's Ackland Museum, give a glimpse of the types of monuments and masterpieces that were reproduced, collected, and distributed throughout Europe. These engravings, etchings, and woodcuts show how printmakers selected particular images, translated them into a very different medium, and sometimes creatively reworked them to make them more understandable to their viewers. Among the works reproduced are paintings by Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian.
