WHAT:     Exhibit – “The Power of the North: German, Dutch and Flemish Old Master Prints.”

WHEN:     Friday, Sept. 2, through Sunday, Oct. 16

WHERE:   University of Virginia Art Museum

                155 Rugby Rd.

WHO:           Stephen Margulies, exhibition coordinator

WHAT:         Gallery Talk

WHEN:         Sunday, Sept. 11, 2 p.m.

WHERE:         U.Va. Art Museum

German, Dutch and Flemish old master prints from 1500 to 1700 exhibit technical innovation and a detailed realism coupled with an eerie aura of magic that coexists with a strong feeling for nature and reality. In contrast, Italian old master prints are characterized by the elegance, intellectual coherence, faith and even scholarly magic they portray.

Yet, there was quite a bit of artistic and personal interchange among Italian printmakers and printmakers from other European countries.

“The Power of the North: German, Dutch and Flemish Old Master Prints” allows viewers to decide if Italian elegance is matched by German, Dutch or Flemish power and precision.

The exhibit is accompanied by a gallery talk by Stephen Margulies, the exhibit curator at the University of Virginia Art Museum, on Sunday, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m.

The museum is open to the public free of charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
