It is at the discovery of an important story that the Louvre Museum invites you to. That of the birth of engraving in the West, which allowed the multiplication of identical images that are engraved and inked beforehand.

The visit leads you in 1400, period during which artists and engravers started to experiment various engraving techniques to be able to print at leisure a chosen image.

The exhibition insists on the original center of this research, the Germanic regions, dwells on the multiplicity of themes illustrated by engravers, and develops the topic around the production techniques of an engraving.

This exciting presentation, adorned with exceptional works, extends to the beginning of the career of the most famous engraver of his time, the Rhenish Martin Schongauer.
