Jacques Callot\, one of the most accomplished printmakers of the 17th century\, revolutionized the technique of etching. Princes an d Paupers focuses on two poles of Callot’s work: his aristocratic comm issions\, and his images of the marginalized and impoverished.

\n

An i nternational artist active in both France and Italy\, Callot (1592–1635) wa s a consummate draftsman. His careful observations never fail to amaze view ers. Callot created more than 1\,400 prints that reveal his fascination wit h a broad range of subjects\, from the miseries of war to aristocratic page antry\; from saints to beggars\; from biblical narratives and theatrical co medies to Gypsies and dwarfs. His prints often developed into series that e xplore a narrative or variations on a theme. Callot’s etchings\, which are consistently imaginative\, inventive\, and witty\, open a window through wh ich to better understand 17th-century Europe.
