Course Spotlight: Students Visit NGA to Look at Renaissance Prints

On Wednesday April 18th, Dr. Allen took students from her ‘Art of the Renaissance’ course for a private viewing of Renaissance prints at the National Gallery of Art. Dr. Ginger Hammer, Curator of Old Master Prints, presented works by Pollaiuolo, Martin Schongauer, Lucas Cranach and of course, Albrecht Dürer. Students were amazed at the scale of the works and the high level of detail achieved by the printmaking process.
