    Recent Print Acquisitions

    Press Releases ?
    • February 1989: A selection of approximately 60 prints acquired by The Brooklyn Museum between 1985 and 1988 will be featured in an exhibition opening March 3. Recent Print Acquisitions, an exhibition of works on paper dating from the late 19th century through the present day, will be installed in the Museum’s Prints and Drawings Galleries, located on the second floor. It will be on view through June 19, 1989.

      Works on view range from Odilon Redon’s 1896 lithograph Les Bêtes de la mer ronde comme des outres from the series La Tentation de Saint-Antoine, created at a time when prints were often issued in albums to be perused like books, to Michael Mazur’s 1983 triptych monotype Wakeby Day II, in which the total image measures approximately 6 feet by 11 feet.

      Other highlights include George Bellows’s lithograph Jean in a Black Hat (n.d.); John Taylor Arms’s etching North Portal of Chartres Cathedral (1939); Ivan Aibright’s lithograph Show Case Doll (1954), considered the artist’s most important work; Jasper Johns’s lithograph Savarin 2 (Wash and Line) (1978); and Barnett Newman’s etching Note XI---State I (1968).

      The exhibition has been selected and organized by Barry Walker, Associate Curator in the Museum’s Prints and Drawings Department.

    "Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

    "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.
