This event is at capacity.

In the 16th century, Antwerp was the main center of printmaking in Europe, followed by Haarlem and Amsterdam in the 17th century. Great printmakers were active in these centers, but publishers, whose names are often inscribed on the works, played a significant role in the creation and circulation of prints throughout Europe. In this seminar, Nadine M. Orenstein of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will discuss print publishing through a selection of prints in the Harvard Art Museums collections.

Offered by:
Nadine M. Orenstein, Drue Heinz Curator in Charge, Department of Drawings and Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art
