Students meet at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the Print Study room to discuss and study original prints, illustrations, and rare books from the museum collection. Masters of the 15th through the 18th centuries are introduced and researched, as well as prints and printed illustration work from the 19th and 20th century. The print is addressed not only in the context of art history but also in terms of its relevancy to the cultural, religious and political climate of its original time.
