    • November 3, 1930: The Exhibition of Woodcuts and Color Prints which was put on view to the public at the Brooklyn Museum on Wednesday morning November, 5th, is extremely interesting from the point of view of fine arts and useful for study purposes. There are 185 exhibits, the work of 10 artists, all of whom are well-known contemporary Austrians. This make-up of the show means that there is a large collection of work by each person so that it is possible to get a comprehensive, retrospective view of their work.

      The character of the exhibition in general is that of conservatism, although in some cases the modern touch is evident. Some of the artists exhibition are the twins, Hans and Leo Franck, well-known painters and wood engravers; Smitbert Lobisser, a Benedictine monk; Alois Leopold Seibold; Elfrida Miller; Engelbert Lap and Mme. Norbertine von Breslern-Roth.

    • April 21, 1931: An Exhibition of Creative Design by pupils of Pratt Institute has been hung in one of the fourth floor galleries of the Brooklyn Museum and will be on view for an indefinite time beginning Sunday, April 19th. The studies were executed by first-year students in the Illustration course of the Institute and consist of decorative arrangements of animal forms both as compositions and as repeat designs suitable for textiles. The subject matter for the work as found in the Natural History hall of the Museum and adapted directly for the decorative motifs by the students, thus distinguishing the work as creative in its development rather than adaptations of forms already in existence. According to the announcement of the show, the execution and the technique was inspired by the exhibition of Austrian Color Prints held in the Library Gallery last November. About 75 of these studies are being displayed. This Illustration course is under the direction of Miss Georgia Everest, under whose supervision this exhibition is arranged.

    "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"
