Buying and Selling: Early Modern Economies of Labor, Merchandise, Services, and Shopping
European artists of the 17th- and 18th-centuries took great interest in depicting modern life, which included commercial exchange and a rapidly expanding market of material goods. The 17 prints and drawings in this exhibition offer views of different types of workplaces and showcase a range of workers at their tasks, from the skilled goldsmith to the lowly butcher and rat catcher.
