About the Exhibit
December 22, 2006 – April 8, 2007
Sensitive to human expression and capable of rendering it convincingly, Ribera, known as a painter, is notable for extending seventeenth-century realism to printmaking. While he only created 18 prints in his life, this exhibition of his etchings and those of his followers, Filippo Liagno, Salvator Rosa, and Luca Giordano sheds light on this little-known aspect of his artistic production and the impact it had on later artists.
Curated by Jonathan Bober, curator of prints, drawings, and European paintings
