National Exhibition of Prints [Print Club of Philadelphia]
- Dates: February 12, 1933 through February 28, 1933
- Organizing Department: Prints, Drawings and Photographs
January 7, 1933: From January 8 to February 6 the Brooklyn Museum will have on view original color prints by American artists. This exhibition assembled by the Print Department of the Museum, is the first of its kind to present color prints—lithographs, etchings and block prints—separately from black and whites, and on such a large scale. There will be approximately 250 items in the exhibition.
The American Federation of Arts plans to circulate a collection of 50 prints by California print maker through the county soon, and with the Brooklyn show this is an indication of a revival of interest in the field of color prints. Particularly well adapted to the decoration of the modern home, the color print is perhaps seen to have a new lease of life, and is to carry on the story which includes so many illustrious names.
NOTE: This exhibition will not be ready for press view until Sunday, January 8. Arrangements can be made at that time for obtaining photographs.
