The European section of the Collection, consisting of over 2,000 prints, includes works by some of the most renowned figures in the history of prints, such as Albrecht Dürer, Jacques Callot, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and Wenceslaus Hollar. Modern European printmaking is represented by works by Stanley Anderson, Seymour Haden, Albert Besnard, Edgar Chahine, Felix Braquemond, and others. This varied collection of European prints, assembled over many years by donation and by purchase, provides an opportunity for students, teachers and scholars in Art History and other disciplines, to engage in original research on the works of individual artists, movements, and periods.
