    National Print Exhibition, 04th Annual

    Press Releases ?
    • March 22, 1950: The 4th National Print Annual opens to the public today (March 22nd). A private view was held yesterday (March 21st) for Museum members, exhibiting artists and guests. The exhibition will remain on view through May 21st.

      The exhibition is comprised of 227 prints representing all contemporary graphic arts media. The selections were made from approximately 1400 entries and represent the work of artists from thirty-two states and Hawaii. Although the most distinguished and noteworthy examples appear in the media of engraving, etching and woodcut, the exhibition as a whole constitutes an impressive cross-section of American printmaking at the mid-twentieth century.

      Members of the jury of selection and award were Aline B. Louchheim, art critic for the New York Times; Stanley William Hayter, artist and teacher; and Una E. Johnson, Curator of Prints and Drawings, the Brooklyn Museum.

      The following artists have received purchase awards:
      Lawrence Barrett
      Fred G. Becker
      Worden Day
      Arthur Deshaies
      Julius Dan Geffen
      Max Kahn
      Mar Jean Kettunen

      Louis Lozowick
      Harriet Burger Nurkse
      Alfred Russell
      Karl Schrag
      Peter Scolamiero
      Anne Wienholt

      A selection of prints from each of the three previous annuals have been circulated throughout the country by the American Federation of Arts, and this year, two months before the opening of the exhibit, the Federation announced that the 1950 show was completely booked for the coming year.

    "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"

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.
