We're getting our mid-winter art fix this week at Art Rotterdam. If you're visiting as well, we've done the hard work for you and picked out the galleries and artists that aren't to be missed. (Or you can just enjoy discovering great new artists from afar). You might also want to check out our Picks of the Day 1 and Picks of the Day 2 at Art Rotterdam, and our picks from the RAW Art Fair.

The Italian artist is known for photo etchings, taking their inspiration from Victorian-era scientific etchings rendered with startling modern details. His work is shown by Federica Schiavo Gallery.
3. Julie Cockburn
London-based artist Julie Cockburn trained as a sculptor, but now works mainly with found photographs that she embroiders, cuts and otherwise alters. Her work is shown by Ramakers Gallery.
