ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN.-The University of Michigan Museum of Art presents Italian Renaissance Prints, on view through December 11, 2005. Italian artists of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries embraced the emerging media of copper engraving and woodcuts as ways of creating multiple impressions of a single work of art. They often copied the masterpieces of prominent painters of the day, such as Raphael, Andrea Mantegna, and Giulio Romano. While the proliferation of such prints increased the fame of painters, the engraver's own virtuosity often turned the prints themselves into fascinating works of art in their own right, full of original and expressive detail and nuance. This exhibition looks at the practice of wood and copper engraving in Florence, Mantua, Venice, and Rome through twenty stellar examples by master printmakers such as Domenico Campagnola, Marcantonio Raimondi, and Diana Scultori.
