Baroque and golden age prints with Dr Miya Tokumitsu | University of Melbourne

The dragon devouring the companions of Cadmus, 1588, engraving, 25.1 × 31.7 (sheet trimmed to image), Gift of Dr J. Orde Poynton, 1959. Baillieu Library Print Collection, University of Melbourne.

This informal object-based learning seminar examines works of art from the Baillieu Library Print Collection first hand. European prints by artists such as Goltzius, Rembrandt and Rubens are spotlighted. The discussion will enhance our understanding of the technical and stylistic achievements of these major practitioners of the Baroque and Dutch golden age periods.

Dr Tokumitsu is Lecturer Art History (Renaissance & Early Modern) and coordinator of the subject The Age of Golden Ages: Art in Europe.

Please note that food, drink, bags and biros are not permitted near the works of art.
