Out of the Vault: European Graphic Arts

June 14 - October 12, 2014

In conjunction with The Golden Age of European Painting, the Museum of Art presents a special exhibition of works on paper that are rarely on view, lest they receive too much light exposure. Out of the Vault: European Graphic Arts, in gallery 1 West, June 14 through October 12, features woodcuts, engravings, mezzotints, etchings, and aquatints by the most important artists who worked in Western Europe since the late 15th-century, including Albrecht Dürer, Pieter Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, Joshua Reynolds, Francisco Goya, and numerous others.

Out of the Vault showcases major subjects of European art including classical literature, landscape, the Judeo-Christian religion specifically, the lives of the saints and Biblical stories about Moses, Samson, the Holy Family, the raising of Lazarus; myths about Jupiter, Apollo, and Hercules; dazzling portraits; pastorals; and charming scenes of humble Dutch life.

Enjoy a special summer at the Museum of Art and take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to explore works of art from the vault.
