Description

Northern Renaissance responses to Italian art were often filtered through prints and other secondary sources while maintaining ties to regional artistic traditions. Dutch artist Hendrick Goltzius traveled to Italy in 1590–91 and developed an intense admiration for the work of Michelangelo. This print depicting a pietà may reflect his knowledge of Michelangelo’s sculpted Pietà while referencing prints from his native Holland.
