Incorporating Albrecht Dürer's striking woodblock prints and Elizabethan maps of London and the world, this exhibition offers insight into the ways in which ideas, languages, cultures and power were exchanged in the Early Modern period (1450-1800). In this slideshow Professor Helen Hackett (UCL English) and Dr Alexander Samson (UCL Spanish and Latin American Studies) discuss the new exhibition they have helped curate in the UCL Art Museum, Word and image: Early modern treasures from the UCL Collections. The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see items from the UCL Art Collections and UCL Library Special Collections.
