The Lovers (after the Housebook Master), c. 1490. Creator: Wenzel von Olmütz (Bohemian) Featured Print

The Lovers (after the Housebook Master), c. 1490. Creator: Wenzel von Olmütz (Bohemian)

The Lovers (after the Housebook Master), c. 1490. The Lovers is related to representations of the garden of love, a popular setting for romance in chivalric literature, and depicts the ideal of courtly love as a noble and inspiring relationship distinguished by faithfulness and mutual devotion. The Housebook Master first executed The Lovers , of which only two mediocre impressions are known. Wenzel's faithful copy, which preserves the subtle psychology of love and devotion expressed in the original, is also extremely rare; six impressions exist, but only one is as fine as the museum's. Wenzel produced careful copies of the work of other printmakers as well, such as Martin Schongauer and Albrecht Durer. In the 1400s, little value was placed on artistic originality, so the imitation of one artist by another carried with no stigma

The Seasons: Winter, 1643-1644. Creator: Wenceslaus Hollar (Bohemian, 1607-1677) Featured Print

The Seasons: Winter, 1643-1644. Creator: Wenceslaus Hollar (Bohemian, 1607-1677)

The Seasons: Winter, 1643-1644. Increments of time, such as the seasons, were one of the most popular subjects for printed sets. Wenceslaus Hollar alone made six different versions. Hollar was a professional printmaker with over 3,000 prints to his credit. Born in Bohemia, he worked in Germany, London, and Antwerp. He came to London in 1636 while in the employ of the Earl of Arundel, an important collector that Hollar met in Germany. Apparently free to pursue independent projects, Hollar designed and etched this series around 1643-44. Here, each season is personified by elegantly clad ladies, appropriately dressed for their particular climate, with recognizable landmarks in and around London in the backgrounds. The inscriptions, in an older version of English, are slightly suggestive, in keeping with the lighthearted character of the imagery. The building on the extreme right is the Tun. It was built in 1283 and served as a lockup for drunks and other public offenders. The inscription reads: "The cold, not cruelty makes her wear / In Winter, furs and Wild beasts hair / For a smoother skin at night, / Embrace her with more delight."
