Among the greatest etchers in the history of printmaking, Jacques Callot is acclaimed for his diverse and often timeless subject matter, his technical innovations in the art of printmaking and his stylistic and thematic influences on artists for years to come. This lecture details just how Callot's work made its way throughout Europe and spread the artist's popularity so widely, and it explores Callot's influence on artists such as his contemporary Stefano della Bella, 19th century artist Francisco de Goya and 21st century artist Sandow Birk.
