    Art Works from the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Theodore J. Edlich, Jr.

    Press Releases ?
    • January 9, 1961: A group of more than thirty contemporary paintings and drawings by 21 artists has been loaned to The Brooklyn Museum Art School by Dr. and Mrs. Theodore J. Edlich Jr. of Manhattan, who began collecting art about 1935. Their collection will be on display in the Art School Gallery for about one month, beginning January 16th. The exhibition is particularly interesting because it includes seven early works by Franz Kline, among them, Portrait of Virginia, a painting of Mrs. Edlich, and six paintings by Marca-Relli. A brush on paper by controversial Jackson Poll[o]ck, two handsome bronze sculptures by Peter Agostini and a wash drawing by Boardman Robinson give the collection variety in media and style. This exhibition is open to the general public without charge, Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Sundays and Holidays 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

    "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"

    Brooklyn Museum Art School

    The Brooklyn Museum Art School opened at the Brooklyn Museum in 1941 and was transferred to the Pratt Institute's Continuing Education Division in 1985. While not a degree-granting institution, its chief purpose was the training of professional artists, although it also offered classes for amateurs. The Art School organized regular group and one-person exhibitions, which were held in the school's gallery and classrooms in the Museum's west wing.
