    Prints and Drawings: Recent Accessions

    Press Releases ?
    • January 13, 1944: Recent accessions in the Department of Prints and Drawings will be placed on exhibition in the small Print Gallery of the Brooklyn Museum on January 14 to continue through March 5. Two outstanding drawings are included; one by Pablo Picasso entitled, “Nude Standing,” was the gift of Mr. Arthur Wiesenberger and the other by Andre Dunoyer de Segonzac entitled, “Model in a Chair,” was acquired through the A. Augustus Healy Fund.

      Among the early American prints exhibited are the series of four etchings by Amos Doolittle entitled “The Prodigal Son,” printed in 1814. Also included are two unusual and rare early American lithographs issued by Duval in Philadelphia and drawn on stone by the artist Gustavus Grunewald who worked in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in the 1830’s and 40’s. Examples of the German Expressionist School are exhibited, among which is an early group given to the Museum by an anonymous donor.

      Four lithographic posters from a series of political satires entitled “Feuille de Caricatures Politiques” by Roubille and a group of contemporary English prints, the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Horace B. Havemeyer, complete the European group.

      A selection of contemporary American prints, including a group from the Now York W.P.A. Graphic Arts Division, are shown. A large portfolio of forty etchings by Rudolph C. von Ripper entitled, “The Soul and Body of John Brown,” issued in a limited edition of 55 and an outstanding example of a contemporary American deluxe publication completes the Museum’s recent accessions in the graphic art.

    "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"

    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.
