Friday, April 7, 2017, 10 AM–5 PM

Explore prints by numerous artists, including the highly skilled and politically savvy Italian female engraver Diana Mantuana (ca. 1547–1612) and the Dutch artist Hendrick Goltzius (1558–1617). Perhaps one of the most recognizable artistic styles, Mannerism is generally characterized by a focus on densely packed compositions and the human form, in images that are deliberately challenging in both design and technique.
