Designs by some of the Netherlandish artists whose work was often copied by sixteenth-century glass painters are on show at a new exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (USA) until 28 February 2011.

Focusing on designs made between 1550 and 1600 in Antwerp and Haarlem, Virtues and Vices: Moralising prints in the Low Countries, 1550–1600 includes seventy engravings from the Museum’s own collection and demonstrates the variety of moralising prints created by leading artists of the Low Countries during a period of significant political and religious change.
