    Manet to Picasso. Prints & Drawings from The Brooklyn Museum

    Press Releases ?
    • January 1993: An exhibition of approximately 35 rarely shown works on paper created in France between 1870 and 1940 will be on view at The Brooklyn Museum March 26 through May 23, 1993. Entitled Manet to Picasso: Prints and Drawings from The Brooklyn Museum, the exhibition will consist of exceptional prints and drawings from the Museum’s permanent collection executed by a number of the greatest artists of the period, when Paris was the undeniable center of the art world and witnessed great creativity, experimentation, and technical innovation in artist printmaking. Among them are works by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, and others.

      Highlights of the exhibition include works by Manet, one of the first Impressionists to make prints, who often used the medium to express his interest in contemporary political events, as in his commentary on the bloody end of the Commune in Paris, La Barricade (1871), and Degas, who was also experimenting with new techniques in printmaking, exemplified in the effects he obtained in the lithograph Mlle. Bécat aux Café des Ambassadeurs (1877-78). Two rare prints by Degas, both showing Mary Cassatt, Degas’s American student, touring the galleries of the Louvre Museum, will also be included, as well as four color prints by Cassat.

      Also included are seven color lithographs by Toulouse-Lautrec, three of them from his famous Elles portfolio of 1896; Picasso’s superb impression of La Minotauromachie (1935), considered by some to be the single most important print in the artist’s oeuvre; and Braque’s important Cubist drypoint Fox (1911).

      Drawing highlights include Paul Cézanne’s L’Amour en Plâtre (c. 1890), a pencil drawing of a Baroque statuette; Pablo Picasso’s charcoal Nude Standing in Profile (1906), which anticipates the artist’s move to Cubism; and Berthe Morisot’s sensitive charcoal study of her daughter and her cousin for the painting La Musique (1893).

      The exhibition has been organized by Linda Konheim Kramer, Curator of Prints and Drawings at The Brooklyn Museum.

    "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"
