Illuminating a dynamic period in the evolution of engraving as a reproductive technique that culminated in the internationally acclaimed achievements of Haarlem printmakers of the late 16th century, this scholarly catalogue presents 91 etchings and engravings by Hieronymous Cock, Cornelis Cort, Hendrick Goltzius, Jan Saenredam and some 35 other artists. Four extensive essays discuss the early use of reproductive engravings as visual models, printmaking theory and practice in the Netherlands during the 16th century, and the revolutionary role of Goltzius in the development of the printmaker's art.
