Stefano Della Bella, Death on the Battlefield
Herman van Swanevelt, Ruins of an Amphitheatre
Albrecht Dürer, The Sea Monster

October 20, 2018 – February 17, 2019

This exhibition of works will be selected by students from Dr. Pia Cuneo’s Fall art history graduate seminar on early modern prints. Using actual objects created during the Renaissance, these students will have the special opportunity to conduct in-depth research in order to understand print production, social and gender norms, and many other topics of the early modern era.
