Dürer to Dine: 500 Years of Printmaking

March 7 – 28, 2013

Since the fifteenth century when Albrecht Dürer created woodblock prints and engravings, printmaking techniques have evolved to include etching, aquatint, lithography, and serigraphy. Highlighting these developments, this exhibition includes prints by seminal artists such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Piranesi, Whistler, Picasso, Johns, Dine and many others.
