Etching was a print technique developed in the sixteenth century, which gave artists the facility to make printing plates without years of specialist training or collaboration with a professional engraver.

This exhibition of prints from the Fitzwilliam's collection features artists from the 16th to the 18th centuries including Parmigianino, Guido Reni, Castiglione, Salvator Rosa, Giambattista Tiepolo and Canaletto.
