The Collection: Prints
An impression of Pieter Bruegel’s only etching, The Rabbit Hunter, a rare edition of Canaletto’s Vedute or Venetian views, and Piranesi’s dramatic Carceri series, are among a number of particularly fine Dutch, Flemish and Italian Old Master prints in the collection.
Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists are strongly represented with etchings, lithographs and wood engravings by Manet, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, Picasso and other artist-printmakers.
Around 20,000 fifteenth- to nineteenth-century
reproductive prints in the Witt Library collection provide an ideal
opportunity to study a wide range of subject matter and printmaking
