An early allegorical and satirical engraving about the response of the Catholic Church to the Protestant Reformation in the mid 16th century. The image is divided between representations of the two opposing groups with a huge scale suspended from the ceiling in the middle. Leaders and proponents of the Catholic Church, aided by a little devil, are no match for their counterparts of the Reformation who have tipped the scale decidedly in their favor with nothing but a huge bible.

 Zooming (Laird Solution), Chicago Air Race Etching by John MacGilchrist. Grand Coulee Dam, Pictorial Maps, Vintage Words, Space Museum, Whitney Museum, Ten Minutes, Art Institute Of Chicago, Library Of Congress, Antique Prints

ZOOMING: We love how information we find online gives a backstory to old prints, like this 1930 etching of a Chicago air race titled "Zooming." Turns out that the airplane's designer, Matty Laird, rushed it into production and built it just for the race in one month. After being tested for a mere ten minutes in the air, aviator Charles "Speed" Holman went on to win the 100-mile event and set a closed-course, non-military speed record.

Portraits

Leonardo da Vinci, who died 500 years ago yesterday, which is an astonishing thought, since the fascination with him as the personification of the Renaissance man has never faded. This 18th-century color-printed etching and engraving by Carlo Lasinio was based on a painting that was long believed to be a self-portrait, but in 1938 x-ray analysis showed it was made at least 100 years after he died. Yet this picture conveys what he may have looked like as a vibrant young man.
