Approximately thirty exceptional prints that span over 500 years and demonstrate a range of printmaking techniques are exhibited in this summer showcase. Among these works include Andrea Mantegana’s engraving of The Flagellation of Christ (1465-1970), Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Rabbit Hunt (1560), the only print executed by the artist himself, and even 20th century works by Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
