Since the invention of photography in the 1830s, sculpture has been a popular subject for the camera.

European printmakers in the 15th to 17th centuries often worked with well-known subject matter—drawn from biblical texts, apocryphal stories, and the contemporary world—that would have been instantly recognizable to their peers. Whether used to create devotional images, narrative illustrations, or portraits, these familiar subjects often served as a starting point from which the artists could implement st...   [more]
