    Art for Children as Shown by Modern European Picture Books

    Press Releases ?
    • November 6, 1929: After a tour of seventeen museums throughout the country including nearly all the important ones as far as the Pacific Coast, the Brooklyn Museum's collection of "Art for Children as shown in Modern European Picture Books" is now on view for a limited time in the Library Gallery of the Museum.

      It is an exhibition of material purchased from a German collector. The adult books were acquired by Princeton and the Children's books by the Brooklyn Museum. Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Russia, Scandinavia and Spain are represented in the collection. Wherever it has been shown it has attracted the attention of book illustrators and the executives of children's departments of publishing houses. The result has been the translation and publishing in this country of two of the books shown in the exhibition.

      Some of the well-known artists whose work appears are: the pupils of Prof. A. Cizek of Austria; Rudolf Mates of Czechoslovakia; Arthur Rackham and W. Heath Robinson of England; Guy Arnous, M. Boutet de Monvel, Edmund Dulac, Edy Legrand and Henri Rivière of France; Gertrud Caspari, Lotte Klemm, Hermann Rombach, Paul Telemann, Hans von Vulkmann and Kaete Wolff of Germany; H. Willebeek LeMaire of Holland; I. A. Bilibin and Boris Grigoriev of Russia; Elsa Beskow, Carl Larsson, Einar Nerman, Kay Nielsen and G. A. Tenggren of Scandinavia and P. Muguruza of Spain.

    "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"

    Education Division

    The Brooklyn Museum's Education Division, which organizes classes and educational programs for children and adults, had its roots in the educational work of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences in the 1890s. Shows of work by students and exhibitions of special interest to students have always been part of the Museum's educational activities.
    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.
