Celebrating one of the most remarkable and “modern” artists of the Baroque period, VMFA presents "Hollar’s Encyclopedic Eye: Prints from the Frank Raysor Collection," an ambitious works on paper exhibition that will be on display in the Evans Court Exhibition Gallery. The exhibition of more than 200 works by this 17th-century master printmaker is drawn exclusively from the Frank Raysor Collection, a promised gift to VMFA. Raysor’s collection of nearly 2,500 prints and drawings by Wenceslaus Hollar rivals those held by the British Museum and the Queen’s Collection in London as well as the National Gallery in Prague and the Fischer Library at the University of Toronto.
