“Passion and Virtuosity: Hendrick Goltzius and the Art of Engraving” is the latest project to take place in the Hoehn Family Galleries. It tells the story of Hendrick Goltzius, who during his own time was as renowned a printmaker as Rembrandt van Rijn. This collaboration with the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento will result in over 50 works by the 16th-century Flemish printmaker coming to USD from February 21 to May 25. Along with Goltzius, singular works by Albrecht Durer and Lucas van Leyden, among others, will be on display. The exhibition is accompanied by a 48-page scholarly catalogue, published by USD.
