The Fisher Library's outstanding collection of prints and book illustrations by printmaker Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) is highlighted in this exhibit, curated by Anne Thackeray. Printmaking reached new technical and artistic levels in the seventeeth century, and Hollar was among its most admired practitioners. His exceptionally wide range of subject matter reflects the political and religious conflicts of his times, changes in book and print culture, and the expansion of European knowledge during his lifetime.
