In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation, the UAMA will exhibit nine Old Master prints from its graphic collection that highlight some of the issues encountered by visual artists working during the Reformation era. Through these works viewers will understand how art was used to shape public opinion about theological debates and their political and social ramifications. Prints by artists such as Pieter Bruegel, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Theodor de Bry illustrate some of the ways these messages were conveyed through biblical stories, portraits, and allegories.
