This exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery in London (18 June–25 September) reveals the artistry of Flemish printmaking in the 16th century. With a focus on designs that would later be translated onto copper printing plates, the show explores how rapid developments in printing production in the late 16th to the early 17th century enabled artists to better disseminate work across Europe, with artistic influences spreading more easily as a result. Highlights include designs by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525–69) and Maerten van Heemskerck (1498–1574). Find out more on the Courtauld Gallery’s website.
