    • May 24, 1940: An exhibition of French color prints, done in the extravagant, frivolous period when moral considerations were not dominant in France in the 18th Century, will make up an exhibition arranged by the Print Department of the Brooklyn Museum, opening Friday, May 24th, and extended through the summer to September 15th. The exhibition, entitled “Estampes Galantes,” will be made up entirely of loans from the Lachman-Mosse Collection, lent by John Rudolf Mosse, and from the collections of M. Knoedler & Company.

      The series “Cries of London” and engravings by Louis Marin Bonnet, from the Lachman-Mosse Collection, will be two groups; the third will be selections of works by several artists from M. Knoedler & Company.

      “Cries of London,” is a series of engravings by Giovanni Vendramini, Luigi and Niccolo Schiavonetti, and Thomas Gaugain after paintings by Francis Wheatley. The Bonnet prints are entitled, “Pretty Nose Gay Garle,” “The Milk Woman,” “Pleasures Of Education,” “Provoking Fidelity,” and “The Woman ta King Coffee.” From the Knodler collections the works shown are by Challe-Alix, Boucher-Bonnet, Bonnet, Vernet-Debucourt, Debucourt, Taunay-Descourtis, Lavreince-Denargle, Lavreince-Vidal and Wille-Janinet.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

    Prints, Drawings and Photographs

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation. These objects are listed here for your reference and archival interest, but the list may be incomplete and does not contain objects owned by other institutions or lenders.
