The Wenceslaus Hollar Digital Collection

Description: 

The Wenceslaus Hollar Digital Collection archives approximately 2,400 of the etchings Hollar produced in his lifetime. Each of the images is rendered as a high-quality, uncompressed, digital facsimile with zooming and toggling functions. The images are browsable by genre or searchable by keyword. Images can also be compared using the website application which allows the manipulation and side-by-side viewing of items in the collections. Finally, The Wenceslaus Hollar Digital Collection also provides information on the Fisher Hollar collection housed at the University of Toronto that contains "some one hundred published works containing original prints made from Hollar's plates, in addition to the individual etchings".
