    Prints for Christmas Gifts

    Press Releases ?
    • December 8, 1943: A Christmas exhibition of fifty original prints under twenty-five dollars by contemporary American artists opens in the small Print Gallery on the second floor of the Brooklyn Museum on December 9, 1943 and is current through January 9, 1944.

      Many of the prints, including etchings, lithographs, silk screen prints and woodcuts, are in color. The majority of them are for sale at the Museum or obtainable directly from the artist or his dealer. The exhibition amply demonstrates that fine original prints are available for no more than the cost of a colored reproduction. The prints have been selected not only from the standpoint of color, composition and technical excellence, but because they reflect new and refreshing ideas or translate into graphic expression the changing pattern of present-day living.

      The prints in the exhibition have been lent by the Silk Screen Group, Weyhe Gallery, Kennedy Galleries, and, in some instances, by the artist himself. A number of the prints represented in this show are also in the Museum’s collection.

    "Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

    "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"
