As the first major exhibition in the United States on the subject of Italian chiaroscuro woodcuts, this exhibition brings together over 100 of the finest examples alongside related drawings, engravings and sculptures. Two chiaroscuro woodcuts by the Renaissance master Ugo da Carpi have been lent from the Royal Collection, both of which are unique impressions in their combination of colours. A drawing attributed to Raphael of The Miraculous Draft of Fishes has also been lent. This drawing served as the model for a later chiaroscuro woodcut by Niccolò Vincentino's workshop which became one of the most influential woodcuts of the period. The exhibition is on display until 16 September 2018 and then transfers to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
