Early Modern Dutch Prints
Rare Works on Paper, Digitized
This online catalogue of light-sensitive and rarely exhibited prints features a selection of 16th- and 17th-century Dutch prints from the museum’s extensive collection of works on paper.
Since paper is a light-sensitive material, these artworks cannot be on display in the museum galleries for extended periods of time. This digital catalogue, curated by Simone Edgar Holmes ’20.5, Associate Professor Carrie Anderson, and the students in her Printmaking in Rembrandt’s Time courses, seeks to make these works accessible to new and wider audiences.
The individual catalogue entries, which are organized by genre and technique, together elucidate the techniques through which 16th- and 17th-century Dutch artists created the three major types of intaglio prints represented in this archive: engraving, etching, and drypoint.
