NB the opening and closing dates for this exhibition have yet to be confirmed

This exhibition shows the print production in the Southern Netherlands in the age of Bruegel. His graphic oeuvre is just a tip of the iceberg. Not every print was made as a work of art, some were made as news prints or political messages. The increasing production and rising popularity of of prints in the sixteenth century is not only an artistic accomplishment.
