Welcome to Platemark, a podcast about art, ideas, prints, and printmaking

Platemark s2e26 history of prints: Jacques Callot (part two)

In s2e26, hosts Ann Shafer and Tru Ludwig conclude the conversation about Jacques Callot, who is the first printmaker in Western art to record the atrocities of war. He heads up any list of artists in the history of prints using them to spread news far and wide about societal ills through visual means. He created some 1,400 prints in his career (no paintings!) and made some of the most remarkable and smallest prints ever. This is a second half of the conversation. If you skipped Platemark s2e25, you might go back and listen to it before this one.
