The greater portion of the lithographs were issued by Currier and Ives and other American lithographic houses which flourished in the 19th century.

    • Date unknown, approximately 1945: The Brooklyn Museum is holding an important exhibition of European and American landscape painting from the fourteenth century to the present. The exhibition, which will open November 9 and continue through January 1, 1946, will include about 80 paintings, many of them loans from other museums and private collections.

      The exhibition will illustrate the development of both the philosophical and visual points of view toward landscape. Henry-Russell Hitchcock of Wesleyan University, has written a foreword to the catalogue of the exhibition in which he discusses the attitudes which have controlled landscape painting in the past and the possibility that “a new aerial vision may renew the art of landscape painting in the twentieth century.”

      The list of paintings to be included in the exhibition (see attached sheet) was compiled by R. Kirk Askew, Jr., who thereby established the concept and character of the show. The choice of paintings was governed by the philosophy and climate of opinion of the period and the artist. It is the first time that landscape has been presented from this approach in an art exhibition.

      PRESS PREVIEW: Monday, November 5, from 10 to 4.

      "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"
