The Georgia Museum of Art holds an important collection of more than 200 Dutch works on paper, consisting mostly of prints from the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Notable examples of the sixteenth century include engravings by Lucas van Leyden such as The Ascension and The Visitation, as well as Hendrick Goltzius’ complete series of 12 prints of The Passion of Christ. The seventeenth century is represented through etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn (mostly posthumous impressions), numerous vignettes of everyday life by Adriaen van Ostade, and landscape scenes by Anthonie Waterloo. The Museum also owns a varied selection of more than 70 works by Flemish artists. Among its holdings are famous engraved portraits by Paulus Pontius and Lucas Vorsterman, both pupils of Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck. In addition, the Museum has an important oil on canvas attributed to van Dyck and his studio, depicting the English Archbishop William Laud.
