> DESCRIPTION

The prints and drawings in this exhibition explore the births, miraculous visions, and martyrdoms of the Christian saints. The images include a rough woodcut published in the late 15 th century and delicate etchings characteristic of the 17th and 18th centuries. The exhibition also demonstrates how the depiction of saints evolved as art and daily life became increasingly secular. Featured artists include Albrecht Dürer (Germany, 1471 – 1528 ), Marcantonio Raimondi (Italy, c. 1470 or 1482 – 1527 or 1534 ), Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo (Italy, 1727 – 1804 ), and Hendrick Goltzius ( n etherlands, 1558 – 1617 ).

 All works in this exhibition are drawn from the Cantor Arts Center Collections.
