  In the minds of most people, northern Renaissance and Baroque engravings, etchings, and woodcuts are images comprised of black lines printed on white paper. Yet, between 1450 and 1650, these monochromatic images frequently were painted. Until recently, however, little was known about the coloring that appears on early prints. This exhibition presents, for the first time, over one hundred examples of German and Netherlandish painted prints and provides the opportunity to explore the many questions these embellished prints raise.
