for the future:

Lois Potter has rightly noted that, for the early modern period,

the most widely circulated visual images, and those which had the greatest effect on public opinion, were the woodcuts and engravings in books and broadsides, not the paintings of Van Dyck, Dobson, and Lely which usually represent the period to posterity. GALLERY exhibits will continue to assess the influence of printed images (along with the paintings and drawings these reconstructed) in early modern culture and society.

A list of forthcoming exhibits is provided below. Annotations for individual entries are accessible through its index of links.
