Selected from a Florida-based collection, this exhibition of prints spans nearly five centuries of European and American printmakers from Old Masters Albrecht Dürer, Anthony Van Dyck, Rembrandt, and David Teniers II, to Modern masters like Paul Gauguin, Hannah Höch, Franz Marc and Marc Chagall. Alongside these celebrated artists, this exhibition presents eye-opening and lesser-known artists who possess equally impressive technical skill. The chronological installation of The Paper Trail not only provides a broad survey of printmaking’s simultaneous developments across Europe and the United States, but also elaborates on specific themes like allegories and the notion of the peintre-graveur (painter-engraver).
The exhibition is organized Robert Evren, Consulting Curator for European Art, and Anke Van Wagenberg, Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Senior Curator of American and European Art, in collaboration with the collector Jack Frost.
Organized by the Norton Museum of Art. Major support for this exhibition was provided by the George and Valerie Delacorte Endowment Fund.
