    Upcoming

    SCRIPTURE FOR THE EYES
    Bible Illustration in Netherlandish Prints of the Sixteenth Century
    The Museum of Biblical Art
    1865 Broadway, New York City
    June 5-September 27, 2009

    Scripture for the Eyes is the first major exhibition to explore the central role played by printed illustrations of subjects from both the Old and New Testaments in the Low Countries during the sixteenth century. Through approximately 80 engravings, woodcuts and illustrated Bibles and books by masters such as Lucas van Leyden, Maarten van Heemskerck, Philips Galle, Hendrick Goltzius and Hieronymus Wierix, biblical prints are shown to be a dynamic force in the transformation of Northern European art between Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt van Rijn as well as in the intensified attention to scripture in the religious turmoil of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation.
