Collectors' Universe: A Collection of Mikins-McClaran Prints

Exhibition July 16 − November 14, 2021

National Gallery of Canada invites you to visit the exhibition "Collector's Universe: A Collection of Mikins-McClaran Prints.".

The exhibit demonstrates the strength and breadth of today's collection, as well as collectors' love of engraved and engraved lines and tones of plate. The selection of engravings ranges from 15th-century German to 17th-century Dutch to 20th-century European and North American and will include works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Albrecht Dürer, Hendrik Goltzius, Giuseppe de Ribera, Jacob van Reisdal, Jean-François Millet, John James Audubon and many others.

It all began forty years ago with the collectors' fascination with the master etchings of Camille Pissarro. Over time, their interests expanded to include the great masters of Northern European prints, such as Dürer and Rembrandt, and the attention of collectors focused on Dutch and Flemish landscape and genre from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
