Renaissance Impressions: Sixteenth-Century Master Prints from the Kirk Edward Long Collection presents a rich survey of the first golden age of European printmaking and reveals important artistic and cultural innovations spurred by the proliferation of etchings, engravings, and woodcuts. Featuring many of the era’s most extraordinary and influential prints, Renaissance Impressions includes examples in all graphic media from Europe’s major printmaking centers, which distributed images by the period’s greatest artists, among them, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian. Through absorbing thematic essays and lively entries on more than eighty prints by master printmakers including Albrecht Dürer, Marcantonio Raimondi, and Hendrick Goltzius, this lavishly illustrated catalogue explores the pivotal role that prints played in shaping visual culture throughout Europe during the Renaissance.
