CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Print Quarterly December 2017 (vol. XXXIV, no. 4) Issue Now Published

An article in this issue examines an important change of convention in the depiction of Africans. Indication of the dark flesh tones of Africans is usually omitted in prints from the fifteenth and sixteenth century, with faces and bodies primarily rendered with outlines. This changed around 1620, when the team of Rubens and Vorsterman took up the challenge of engraving black skin, with far-reaching consequences.
