Jacques Callot: Varie Figure

Friday, July 23, 2021

This exhibition features work in the series Varie Figure, or Various Figures (1621-1628) by the pre-eminent French printmaker Jacques Callot. Callot is considered one of the most accomplished printmakers in the Western tradition. He was a keen observer of life and was one of the first artists to introduce the average person, or non-nobility, into his work. The series contains 16 works pulled from the Museum's permanent collection. Most works feature double images of the same figure. It has been suggested that this series served as a drawing book or model for learning rapid, freehand drawing.
