February - April 2005
Susan Dackerman is former curator and head of the department of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Baltimore Museum of Art and newly appointed Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Curator of Prints at the Harvard University Art Museums. Dackerman's previous exhibition projects include Painted Prints: The Revelation of Color in Northern Renaissance and Baroque Engravings, Etchings, and Woodcuts (Philadelphia, 2002) and Books Arts in the Age of Dürer (Baltimore Museum of Art, 2000). While at the Clark Dackerman will pursue research on the intersection between artists, printed images, and science in the early modern period. The project, which investigates how contemporary scientific theory influenced the work of such significant printmakers as Dürer, Burgkmair, Titian, and Goltzius, will culminate in an exhibition and catalogue.
