"Spreading Devotion: Japanese and European Religious Prints"
Hans Baldung Grien. "Virgin on a Grassy Bank", 1505–07

The invention of print made religious images and texts available to a wider audience, resulting in beautiful books and pamphlets that combined scripture with intricate art. The Art Institute's new exhibition examines religious prints from the East and the West, including woodblock prints of patron saints and Japanese deities.
