Some of the most exquisitely detailed works of Rembrandt, Goya and Dürer were on display in Rembrandt, Goya and Dürer: The Marvel of Old Masters. The exhibit featured more than 100 engravings, etchings and woodcuts from these legendary artists.
The greatest master of Baroque art, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) created more than 300 etchings during his lifetime. His famous self-portraits and etchings of religious subjects revolutionized the medium and greatly influenced such artists as Goya, Whistler, Chagall and Picasso. Francisco Goya (1746-1828) was the most important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. His drawings and engravings reflected the great social upheavals of his time. Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was the preeminent printmaker of the German Renaissance. His engravings exerted a huge influence on such major artists as Raphael, Titian and Parmigianino.
Works appearing in the Marvel of Old Masters were on loan from the Park West Museum in Southfield, Mich.
