Wenceslaus Hollar, Wenceslaus Hollar, 17th century.

This exhibition celebrates one of the least known but most remarkable and “modern” artists of the Baroque period. Focusing on his mastery of print work, Hollar’s Encyclopedic Eye includes more than 200 prints representing the range and quality of Wenceslaus Hollar’s work drawn exclusively from the Frank Raysor Collection, a promised gift to VMFA. Curated by Dr. Mitchell Merling, VMFA Paul Mellon curator and head of the department of European art and Colleen Yarger, curatorial assistant for European art and the Mellon collections and interim head of the department of European art.
