About the Show: 

Fake News & Lying Pictures: Political Prints in the Dutch Republic is on display at the Krannert Art Museum August 25, 2022 - December 17, 2022. This show "explores the myriad and complex visual strategies early modern printmakers in the United Provinces used to memorialize historical events, lionize and demonize domestic and international leaders, and form consensus for collective action... Organized in six sections, the exhibition explores the continuity and development of tactics and themes used to picture political beliefs and events."
