Early Modern Prints from the Kent Print Collection

Early Modern Prints in the Kent Print CollectionDr Ben Thomas and Professor Tom HenryThursday 4th October 2018, 6pm in Jarman Studio 6, University of KentThe Kent Print Collection was established in the summer of 2005 with the acquisition of fourteen prints by leading figures in the history of printmaking, which are representative of different periods and styles of European art and of the different techniques of printmaking. The KPC is an ongoing experiment in collecting: uniquely only undergraduate students are allowed to buy works of art for the collection. We have also acquired prints through donation. This session provides an opportunity to study a selection of the early modern prints in the KPC including: • Albrecht Dürer, The Circumcision of Christ, c.1505-10, woodcut• Diana Mantuana, Christ and the Adulteress, after Giulio Romano, 1575, engraving• Agostino Carracci, St. Jerome, after Francesco Vanni, c. 1595, engraving• Jacques Callot, Pasquariello Truonno-Meo Squaquara, c.1621, etching• Salvator Rosa, The Dream of Aeneas, c.1663, etching Issues that may arise in discussion include the nature of early modern print culture, the relation of image and text, the techniques of printmaking, and early modern material culture. The discussion will be led by Dr Ben Thomas and Professor Tom Henry from the University of Kent's History of Art Department.
