    Prints & Drawings by Max Beckmann: A Retrospective Exhibition

    Press Releases ?
    • October 12, 1949: An exhibition of one hundred prints and drawings by Max Beckmann opens in the Print Galleries of the Brooklyn Museum on October 11 with a private opening and reception and will open to the public the following day. The exhibit will remain on view through November 27.

      Beckmann’s graphic work dated roughly from 1909 when he completed a series of lithographs. They were followed by woodcuts, etchings and drypoints in a wide range of subjects from portraiture to biting comments on the social and political chaos of Germany during and after the First World War.

      Beckmann’s paintings and prints were exhibited by J.B. Neumann in New York in 1931 at the time the artist was being attacked by the Nazis. However, it was not until last year that a large retrospective exhibition of his work was held in this country. Beckmann has lived in the United States since 1947 and is, at present, an instructor at the Brooklyn Museum Art School.

    "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"

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.

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.
