Please join us for a preview of this exciting exhibition Hollar’s Encyclopedic Eye: Prints from the Frank Raysor Collection (on view February 2, 2019 – May 5, 2019). One of the most prolific printmakers of the Baroque period, Wenceslaus Hollar (Bohemian, 1607–1677) rose up out of obscurity in one of Europe’s most turbulent eras to amass an astounding body of work. Drawn exclusively from the Frank Raysor Collection, a promised gift to VMFA, this exhibition presents over 200 Hollar prints—remarkable for their range of subjects, stunning details, and rare visual records of 17th-century Europe. The Raysor Collection, as a promised gift, makes VMFA one of the world’s five major Hollar repositories.
