Nicknamed ‘Il Grechetto’ for the classical feel of his pastoral landscapes, the Genoese artist Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione was among the most fluent draughtsmen of the 17th century. He also produced a prodigious number of etchings, and invented the technique of monotype printmaking. This display at the Kunsthaus Zürich (10 December–6 March 2022) – the first solo show of Castiglione’s work in the German-speaking world – brings together more than 80 of his works on paper.
