This exhibition includes a selection of early and mid-sixteenth century drawings and prints by Renaissance artists for whom ancient sculpture remained a perpetual source of inspiration. The selection reveals some of the ways in which draftsmen and printmakers from different parts of Europe responded to the common heritage of classical antiquity. Also on display is an exceptional group of prints after designs by Frans Floris de Vriendt (1519/20-1570), the foremost Netherlandish artist of the mid-sixteenth century. They showcase Floris's innovative treatment of mythology and history.
