Join Caitlin Condell, Assistant Curator, Drawings, Prints & Graphic Design, for a tour of Fragile Beasts, an exhibition of nearly 70 rarely seen ornamental prints and drawings from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Within the confines of ornamental designs, artists turned elements from nature into otherworldly beings, known as grotesques. These creatures, fearsome or playful, graceful or rigid, are found in dense and sinuous designs for locks, ewers, rings, tapestries, stained glass, and more.
