There has been placed on exhibition in the Print Room of the Fogg Museum a collection of over 200 seventeenth century portrait engravings. The prints show the development during this period and the character of the work of its masters, including, from the Low Countries, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Vorsterman, and Paul Pontius; and from the French school, Jean Morin, Mellan, Nanteuil, Edelinck, and Drevet.
There is also on view the permanent exhibition of prints by Durer, Goltzius, and Van Leyden, the three great masters of the primitive schools.
In the centre of the room is a selection of 36 plates from Turner's "Liber Studiorum." They consist of etchings from his own drawings and represent scenes in Scotland and England.
