We’re gaining on you, Goya!

Did you know that many of your favorite historical printmaking personalities find time to maintain their own Facebook pages? It’s true. Here’s a bar graph that shows how Printeresting stacks up in the competitive world of printmaking Facebook fanpages. We may be a long way from Hokusai, but at least we aren’t Hendrick Goltzius. If you’re feeling generous, you may want to stop by poor Goltzius’ page and show him some love. Fair warning, it’s kind of grim over there.
