Course Description: 

This course will examine the history of European printmaking from its beginnings in the fifteenth century through the seventeeth century. The class will explore such major printmakers as Schongauer, Mangegna, Dürer, Raimondi, Callot, and Rembrandt as well as of prints that served as pilgrimage souvenirs, illustrations in scientific treatises, or reproductions of art in other media. The course will explore key issues in the study of prints, such as the ways in which a mechanically produced image could be individualized. We will study prints in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and other collections. Graduate students are expected to complete all the requirements in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester. 

Course meets often at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
