Old Europe

Hans Sebald Beham (Germany 1500–1550) Hercules fighting against the Centaurs 1542

This display of some 100 works from the Gallery’s collection tells the unfolding story of the graphic arts in Europe, from the time of Mantegna and the master printmakers of the Italian Renaissance up to the 18th century.

The exhibition features such artists as Dürer, Rembrandt, Callot, Canaletto and Fragonard.

Much of the Gallery’s collection of earlier prints and drawings has rarely if ever been seen by the public.
