In the work of Callot, everyday subjects were elaborated and ennobled through elegant design and etching that, with the use of a hard ground, affects the ideal appearance of engraving. Les supplices, a famous plate from his latest activity, presents a series of vignettes of contemporary corporal punishment. It becomes, however, universal through the panoramic urban setting, remove from individual reaction, and refined touch. The Steinberg Collection counts more than 150 prints by Callot, with some, like this, of considerable rarity and great quality.
