    American Block Prints, 05th Annual [Print Club of Philadelphia]

    Press Releases ?
    • May 5, 1931: The Fifth Annual Exhibition of Block Prints will be held in the Print Gallery of the Museum from May 6th through June 30th.

      This collection, which is assembled by the Print Club of Philadelphia has increased in importance and scope to an extent that it now ranks as a nationally representative group of artists using as medium of expression wood block printing, both in color and black and white. The Mildred Boericke prize for the best print in the exhibition has been awarded to Fiske Boyd for his "Interior", a view of a modest parlor with an unusual angle of perspective and a strong technical appeal. Honorable mention was granted to I. J. Saneer for his "Connecticut Village” and to Charles M. Capps for the composition entitled "Low Water”.

      Ernest W. Watson, instructor of the weekly class in block printing in the Museum, is represented by "A Cornish Fishing Village".

      One hundred and nine prints are shown, the exhibition including Helen West Heller; Emil Ganso, Norman Kent, Howard Cook, Salvatore Pinto, Hobson Pittman, Leon Underwood, Angelo Pinto, Mary Sauter and Leo Neissner.

      (Photographs of the prize-winning prints will be available)

    "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"

    Prints, Drawings and Photographs

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. 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. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. 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.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation. These objects are listed here for your reference and archival interest, but the list may be incomplete and does not contain objects owned by other institutions or lenders.
