Jacques Callot's Miseres de la guerre as narrative: 18 etchings from 1633



The etcher/engraver Jacques Callot printed the second state of Les Misères et malheurs de la guerre in 1633. These images are in the public domain and the originals are held by Minneapolis Institute of Art. They are presented here in their entirety and in order, because viewing them together and as an ordered series shows that they form a narrative. It is being released now in advance of publication of my more extensive findings.

Additional information about these etchings can be found in the Minneapolis Institute of Art's online collection portal. The accession numbers for the etchings are consecutively ordered from P.1,357 for the title page to P.1,374 for image 18.
