This exhibition of intaglio and woodblock prints from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries features work on loan from private collectors with strong Truman State University connections. The show includes close to twenty works by major Renaissance artists such as Albrecht Dürer and Lucas Cranach. In addition, it includes a seventeenth-century print, The Descent from the Cross by Torchlight, by Rembrandt van Rijn, one of the most noted artists of the seventeenth century, and a selection of poems written by Truman English faculty members in response to some of the prints.
