Goltzius and the Pelican Company

Woodmere Art Museum

Hendrick Goltzius (1558–1617) was the leading Dutch engraver of the early Baroque period. Writer, director, and provocateur Peter Greenaway dramatizes the artist’s transition from engraver to painter in this lush and layered fantasy about his staging of a series of erotic biblical tableaus for a rich and corrupt nobleman (F. Murray Abraham). Screening introduced by art historian Nicole Elizabeth Cook, PhD.
