December 21, 1965: A group of watercolors by Albert Christ-Janer, Dean of the Pratt Institute Art School, will be displayed at The Brooklyn Museum from December 27 to January 9.
Mr. Christ-Janer has been Dean of the Art School, Pratt Institute, Brooklyn since l958. He is represented in a number of collections, among them the Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum and the Rochester Memorial Art Gallery.
Commenting on his watercolors, Christ-Janer explains: “Recent availability of the plastic glues has increased the artist’s versatility in this medium. Having experimented with the polymer glues for ten years, I have simply used them as a master binding agent; pigment, paper, sands - all are mixed together, in design, and firmly held together by these wonder-working glues. This kind of painting may be the most permanent of all.”
The works will be exhibited at the entrance of the West Gallery on the fifth floor.
