Exhibit Details

This exhibition of approximately 20 prints features the work of Baroque artist Stefano della Bella (1610-1664), a prolific creator of landscapes, city scenes, battles, animal studies, mythological subjects and fantasies. A skilled draftsman and accomplished etcher, he created an extensive body of work of thousands of images through the patronage of the Florence court and Medici family. This exhibition is a lesson in Baroque art history as well as the printmaking process. It has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the prints are on loan from the University of Richmond Museums as part of the University’s I. Webb Surratt, Jr. Print Collections.
