Collection Highlights

  • Print showing a portrait of Agatha Scholiers seated in a chair with hands clasped and a closed book on the table in front of her. She is wearing a ruff and a striped dress trimmed with fur. Buildings are visible in the distance.


    Portraits record the likeness of the sitter, but they also convey aspects of identity such as power or importance, wealth, innocence, virtue, and many other qualities.

  • Print showing a female figure with her head slightly lowered and her hands clasped in prayer. A lamb sits at her feet and her skirt and hair appear to be blowing in a breeze. The Crucifixion is pictured on the right side of the frame.


    Saints, martyrs, and scenes of worship appeared frequently in early prints.
