Myth, Allegory, and Faith: The Kirk Edward Long Collection of Mannerist Prints

Selected from the Kirk Edward Long collection of 16th-century prints, this exhibition illuminates the development of the Mannerist style in Italy, traces its dissemination and adaptation for both secular and religious purposes, and follows its eventual transformation into the Baroque style at the end of the century. The exhibition features some 140 engravings, etchings, woodcuts, and chiaroscuro woodcuts by such renowned artists as Federico Barocci, Parmigianino, Hendrick Goltzius, and Annibale Carracci, and by such famous printmakers as Marcantonio Raimondi, Giorgio Ghisi, and Cornelis Cort.
