Master Prints: Dürer to Matisse

November 6, 2014 - February 22, 2015

This exhibition showcases 40 astonishing, museum-quality works on paper.  Including woodcuts, etchings, engravings, and lithographs, the exhibition spans a period of 500 years. Works by old masters Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, and Canaletto will be displayed alongside those by modern masters such as Degas, Matisse, Picasso, and Cezanne.  The installation will be accompanied by a video demonstrating the engraving process, and explanatory texts describing the role prints held in society before the advent of photography.
